My PC is using Windows 7 32-bit now.
Number of Cores: 2
2.10 GHz 2.10 GHz
64-bit capable: Yes
RAM: 1 GB
Presently Windows 7 on turning on uses 600 MB of RAM and shows no performance issues.
Can anyone please Recommend me a Linux Distro which is:-
Q4OS, Slax, AntiX. If you go for Debian-based distro like Q4OS or Slax, you will have a variety of software to choose from. I think things that work on Debian will work on those. Some people recommend AntiX for older computer but I don’t know whether it is good or not.
Q4OS has two desktops - Trinity and Plasma. Trinity is lightweight as far as I heard.
But In Trinity Desktop, If a bug is to be fixed, It takes around 5-6 months (As far as I heard).It is a very long time.
Slax is Live CD/USB OS. But I don’t need Live OS and I change my USB daily.
They will be Resource Heavy for 1 GB Ram. Can’t be used.
Puppy linux would work also on that machine. But you may want something more If you could up the Ram to say 4 GBs then it would run a much larger selection of Distros. I would recommend XFCE desktop also. MX is a good choice. But really needs more ram.
Good luck on your search.
P.S. even 2 GBs would help.
