I am hoping to get some recommendations on a distro to try out and load on a piece of really old tech. I was gifted an old Gateway desktop PC that is currently running Windows XP (albeit quite poorly). Some specs on it:
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 494MB RAM
Graphics: Integrated Intel Graphics Controller 64MB
I am not quite a novice at Linux, but not quite an intermediate user either. Mostly, I consider myself lucky!
I am looking for something different from Mint or Ubuntu perhaps, which I have on my primary and laptop computers.
Is there a good light-weight distro you can recommend that would be good for a machine like this? I am not looking to do big stuff with it. Just a side machine, web surf, and basic things, etc.
Any ideas or tips are welcome.
