Quelitu is a lightweight, user-friendly, and really fast Linux operating system based on Ubuntu/Lubuntu. It is compatible with Windows file formats and can be installed alongside Windows on your computer or replace it completely. It is an ideal replacement for expiring Windows XP an reputedly slow Vista.
You have a choice of several interfaces, ranging from simple and easy (Lxde), to the more sophisticated (Jazz/E17). to the kids' interface offering a good choice of fun and educational games, transforming for free an old PC into a fun computer for kids.
Quelitu comes with lightweight applications, but can quickly be scaled up with full suites and advanced software from the built-in free Ubuntu repositories. It also has more advanced components, like Qx Hub, a quick-access feature for files, applications, and configuration settings similar to Ubuntu's dash/HUD, but simpler.
Because of its low RAM usage, Quelitu can turn even an old PC into a perfectly functional computer with the latest software. Quelitu is compatible with most Windows files (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xml, .pps, .ppd, .html, .pdf, .jpg, .png, .mpg, .wmv, .avi, .rmvb, .vob, .mkv, .wma, .mp3, .mp4, .pls, .zip, .7z, .rar, .torrent).
Quelitu is available as Live Hybrid ISO, meaning that it can be burnt to a CD or installed to a USB. Although slower, these allow users to try Quelitu without installation or making any changes to a computer. USEFUL: The CD/USB can be used to rescue files from a broken/crashed Windows computer, depending on the problem.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you visit the publisher's website for special installation instructions.
