I tried out a new Stretch install with the Xfce desktop on a now 12 year old laptop that took me through college back in the day just to amuse myself during the lockdown here in Ireland.

I'm really surprised at how well it runs. It still can hang a little if you try to do too much at once, but it's light-years faster than Windows 10 on the same machine.

I figured Buster might be too much, but given how perfectly usable the Stretch install is I probably should have installed that. The 720p resolution can be a bit of a pain at times mind you.

Not sure, my virtual disk is too small :(

I'll try again with a bigger disk...

EDIT: it worked :)
