Two more good distros which I've installed recently; LXLE, a distro for older computers based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Scientific Linux 6.5 - a somewhat retro but very solid distro which is based on CentOS 6.5.

For the latter though I can't see that it offers a lot (if anything) more than Stella, which is a much smaller download - about 1.2 GB, as opposed to 4.3 GB and 0.5 GB for Scientific (it needs two DVDs), and is also based on the current release of CentOS.

Colonel Panic, have you tried Semplice's latest, 6.0?

It's quite something. Using Alan2, much faster menu display/refresh. And a systemd shutdown. Under 3 seconds, even w/ my old hardware.

Jakfish seems skeptical in the first post of this thread

Simplicity Linux - something fishy about it.

The Dev is almost never active here and seems
to not want a dialog? But I am only curious.

Hi, nooby,

I think we're talking about two different linuxes there: simplicity vs semplice

Semplice is here http://semplice-linux.org/discover

I'm not certain, however, you could do one of your usb installs, even though semplice comes in at about 2gbs.

Best to you,
Jake

It's looking good. Where did you get your Conky config from though?

A lot of experimentation....... Laughing

When I boot that machine again I'll post the conky.conf. file.

I trust that you get this right and I get it wrong.

They are unrelated most likely

Thanks James, that would be great. We could probably do with a thread for conky configs though (if there isn't one on this forum already).

I like the one on Pinguy, but couldn't find its config file when I looked for it recently; it's quite similar to yours.

Some distros use .conkyrc (a hidden file) in the home/user/ directory. That appears to be where a lot of Debian/Ubuntu spins put it...... just checked in LXLE.

Thanks James (and for your conky config file too).

Cheers,

@james C

Love the black and blues of your take 3.

What distro did you say that is? Guess I will have to go play with ice.
