I subscribe to this thread and now, whenever it calls me here, I feel a pain, looking for nooby's posts that always asked if the latest distro would do a usb install...

Sigh,
Jake

I installed Mint 17 XFCE4.
I've just started using it but it looks nice so far, the package
manager is impressive.

I'm going to take the 64-bit version of Sparky Linux 3.4 "Game Over" Edition a try.

I'm a month into daily (general home) use of both Mint 17 Xfce and Mate, dual-booting on this old 1.6 Ghz core duo, 1 Gb RAM laptop - still can't decide which one I prefer. Both are excellent! They just work, day in and out - solid, stable and trouble-free. Very efficient, too - idling @ 1-2% CPU with composting enabled and Screenlets, Wbar and Conky running on the desktop (eye candy Smile ). Between the many choices available via both package manager and synaptic, can be easily built into about whatever one needs. Great release!

I like your desktop Smile , I have both installed as well but I think xfce gets my vote.
This is a great release for sure.

I was curious to see how well Mint 17 xfce would run on an older pc so
I installed it on my hp pavilion a810n.

Computer
Processor AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3300+
Memory 1534MB (643MB used)
Operating System Linux Mint 17 Qiana
Display
Resolution 1920x1080 pixels
OpenGL Renderer Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV530
X11 Vendor The X.Org Foundation
OpenGL
Vendor X.Org R300 Project
Renderer Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV530
Version 2.1 Mesa 10.1.3
Direct Rendering Yes
Version
Kernel Linux 3.13.0-24-generic (x86_64)
Compiled #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC 2014

It's working pretty well, not exactly speedy but useable.

My main development box is an athlon X2 @ 3GHz.. but 4 GB RAM helps out a fair bit with RAM hungry distros. What is the actual clockspeed of "3300+"?

It's 2.4GHz, it's only a single core so it's working pretty hard, room for another 512mb ram which might help a bit.

EDIT:

Using Qupzilla instead of Chromium, Clementine instead of XBMC, especially if you have more than one app running makes a big difference.
