Hey all! I'm new here - as you may have gathered I am primarily a Mac OS X user however, I have an old Sony Vaio laying around that I wish to run Linux on.
I've tried Suse Linux 7.2 on my Mac which I like a lot... it's got all the things that I am familiar with on OS X and I like the idea of virtual desktops etc.
Anyway.. my question is:
What's the best distro to run on my run down Vaio? The specs:
- 266Mhz Pentium Processor
- 32mb RAM
- 4GB of HD space
I take it Linux can run on basically anything, SuSe (too slow) and Redhat 9 is also too much for the little blighter to handle. So something light and slim.
I would like to have a GUI, and to do basic word processing/spreadsheet and maybe... maybe run the GIMP.
Internet access is going to be a no no.
TIA! Current Mood: geeky
