Years ago I bought a Lenovo Ideapad s205.
I tried installing all versions of Ubuntu (Kubuntu, Lubuntu, etc.), Fedora, Arch Linux, none of them was able to make the Wi-Fi work (the distros detected it as if the hardware was switched off, even though it wasn\'t because with Windows it worked perfectly, it turned out to be a Kernel issue with the BIOS version afaik).
The laptop came with Windows (that of course supported the Wi-Fi card), but it was so slow that it was barely usable.
I was ready to give up on this nice little laptop, until I found LXLE.
After about a year or never having Wi-Fi work (didn\'t even work with an external card either), it worked right after installation!
The system itself is great, it\'s super fast and lightweight, a real successor of Crunchbang if you ask me.
Would definitely install it on newer computers too!
Installed from a Linux Format CD on a Thinkpad X201. Incredibly snappy with an uncluttered interface and a reassuring retro feel. ~Adrian Lewis
