wattOS is a fast desktop Linux distribution based on Ubuntu. Using the lightweight LXDE desktop as its default user interface, the distribution strives to be as energy-efficient as possible so that it can be used on low-specification and recycled computers.
The result is a light, clean, fast desktop in both cases that can be used to bring old computers back to life or as a basis to start with a clean simple desktop for whatever use you decide to customize into.

LXDE versions wattOS should be able to run on any system that has a processor released in the last 10 years (some even further back) with 192-256MB of RAM to install but less than 128MB after install is complete. We enjoy bringing old computers back to life, and wattOS is a great candidate to do that.
