Linux How can you run a full range of current applications on older computers, netbooks, thin clients, and mobile devices? One way is to install a lightweight Linux like Puppy, Lubuntu, or Vector Light. Select the distro with the apps that meets your needs while matching your computer's resources.

Please, please, PLEASE, stop using the word "performant". This word does not exist in the English language, nor even the American version, and is utterly meaningless.

I stopped reading the instant I saw that word. If you want others to value what you think and write, please don't make up your own words. If English isn't your first language then please use a dictionary.

If authors can't be bothered to write correctly then I can't be bothered to read what is written.

I don't know if WordWeb is in any way authoritative, but it does contain an entry for performant:
