My old Dell Latitude D630 laptop

had no problem walking the path from LM 19.0 to each successive version up to 19.3. For a venerable machine it works surprisingly well except for a lengthy startup time (2 to 3 minutes to login prompt and other 2 from login to desktop) caused mainly by the patches for Intel CPU bugs.
