Once more, thank you Mark,I appreciate you taking the time to produce a comprehensive explanation, even though I have needed to read it twice to begin to get the picture - but that's my failing. And as such I have copied and pasted it to a text document for future reference.I'll watch the Youtube videos as you suggest, especially Peppermint7.You state: "Consider this ..there are the heavyweight but easy to install/use distros such as Mint, Ubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora, etc.there are the heavyweight but easy to install/use distros such as Peppermint, LXLE, Linux Lite, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc."In the mention of heavyweight, above, might one of those descriptions be 'lightweight'? I don't wish to be pedantic, just certain. Ed.
I have looked at Peppermint7, Linux Mint, Ubuntu and Ubuntu MATE. And although I'm beginning to understand the differences between Linux systems and MS, references to things like: SSB?s, gedit, pluma and Vbox tend to muddy the waters a bit for me, but I'm sure I'll get to grips with them in time.
