New Sparky convert in St. Louis
« on: May 27, 2015, 07:55:05 pm »
Hey, y'all.  I recently installed Sparky 4.0 release candidate 64-bit LXDE edition onto both my desktop box and my laptop.  My previous distro, LXLE, also uses LXDE as its desktop, but with it being based on Ubuntu, I was tired of having to reinstall every time a new version came out, plus I didn't like the fact that they plan to, after their current release, only support 64-bit systems, which, IMHO, defeats one of the purposes of Linux (namely, resurrecting old computers).  So far, I love what I'm seeing.  I've also installed that same version of Sparky onto a USB drive I bought at our local MicroCenter the other day that I carry with me all the time.  For the last several years, I've been very partial to Debian-based distros although getting tired of anything Ubuntu-based due to having to back up and reinstall every 6 months.  Thus, a Debian-based distro it was for me, and Sparky fit the bill perfectly with everything I'm looking for.  :)
