In this page I will not list all the existing linux distro but I will only publish those that
I love to use, or that fall into the category of light distributions.
The motivation of my choice falls on the fact that I love the minimal and fast distributions (without unnecessary frills),
without unnecessary pre-installed programs.

::: LUBUNTU :::

Lubuntu is one of the most popular and widely used Linux distributions,
it can work on almost any hardware.
In my opinion it is one of the best existing Linux distributions,
suitable not only for older computers but also for the most modern ones,
for those who like to work smoothly or slow down the system,
abandoning the useless frills of certain Linux distributions full of transparency effects
and various useless things.
Just installed, it looks similar to Windows XP, with a lower panel and menu on the bottom left.
Lubuntu in recent versions has introduced some features to make some more common
customizations intuitive (link to the Recycle Bin on the desktop, creation of launchers, etc.).

Minimum hardware requirements for Lubuntu:

CPU: Pentium II o Celeron, Pentium III 600 MHz recommended
Ram: 128 MB, 512 MB recommended
Video card: VGA (ris 800x600), VGA recommended (ris 1024x768)

Lubuntu use LXDE. Future versions will use LXQt
Great and active support from the community. A couple of Lubuntu support groups are also active
Easily installed (and usable) via a USB flash drive.

::: PEPPERMINT :::

The Cloud-based Linux desktop.
You can integrate any cloud-based (web) app into the Peppermint operating system.
It does not have many preinstalled apps so you can customize Peppermint according to your needs.
Peppermint is the distribution I prefer most along with Lubuntu,
is a perfect cross between LXDE AND XFCE,
light and fast without giving up some transparency effect (on the windows),
in my opinion useful when working with multiple active windows on the desktop.

Peppermint's minimum hardware requirements:

It does not need a lot of resources,
but for good use we recommend using this distribution
with more resources than the minimum requirements.

512 MB of RAM (1 GB recommended)
Any processor based on Intel x86 architecture
At least 3.6 GB of disk space
Data and characteristics of Peppermint
It is the desktop cloud by definition.

Easily integrated with the Web app
You can only install the software you want
Excellent user interface, especially if you're moving from Windows
Based on Lubuntu
LXDE Desktop Environment
Easily installed (and usable) via a USB flash drive.

::: XUBUNTU :::

For me, the only distribution that gives you lightness and speed,
without renouncing any graphic effect, Xubuntu like all the distro XFCE
is completely customizable, this is one of its strengths by including
this distribution among those most downloaded from the web.
Always keeping the lightness, you will find the essential packages and programs,
recently the publication of the 18.04 Bionic Beaver promises faster and performant.
Xubuntu is an easy-to-use distribution often used by users who switch from Windows
to Linux, ideal for laptops and desktop computers.

Minimum hardware requirements for Xubuntu:

CPU: 300 MHz minimum (x86), 800 MHz recommended
Ram: 256 MB, 512 MB recommended
Video card: VGA (ris 800x600), VGA recommended (res 1024x768)

Xfce is the ideal solution for older computers or hardware components
with low performance, given its system requirements.
