      Heads up for those who may be interested, or just out of curiosity:
      From my initial viewing, this version looks like it’s had a big revamp behind the scenes with more applications available via their AppCenter. This version actually looks visually appealing for newbies who are considering a partial move to Linux.

      Recommended System Specifications
      While we don’t have a strict set of minimum system requirements, we recommend at least the following specifications for the best experience:
      Recent Intel i3 or comparable dual-core 64-bit processor
      4 GB of system memory (RAM)
      Solid state drive (SSD) with 15 GB of free space
      Internet access
      1024×768 display

      Detailed OS information:


      Verify your Download
      Verifying your download is an important, but optional step. We generate a checksum (or hash sum) for elementary OS images and we recommend that you verify that your download matches that checksum before trying to install. This ensures that you’ve received the full, complete download and that your install image is not corrupted in any way.

      Running the following command in your terminal:
      sha256sum elementaryos-5.0-stable.20181016.iso

      should produce the output on this webpage:

      Note: As with ALL iso’s, you can also use third party checksum/ hash utilities which are freely available on the internet to verify the iso to ensure that the sha256 checksum matches prior to installing.
      If it does not match, trash the iso.

      Note: I have no affiliation with Elementary OS, developers etc..

      I have the previous version of Elementary OS. It is very lightweight. If you have an old, lame computer that you still want to use, I would try Elementary OS on it. Not only is it lightweight, but it is basically bug free and solid.
