Running great so far on this 10+ year old laptop. The only thing I've not got working yet is the bluetooth which is far from being a deal breaker.

Really impressed and think I'll be sticking with this distro for the foreseeable future - looking forward to seeing what the switch to the 18.04LTS base will bring. Great work guys!
