I am looking for a lean distro to give me the following:
- A basic GUI Interface
- Internet (Browser, email, etc.)
- Decent Hardware Support (not perfect)
- Not a Hardware HOG
I want to be able to provide a Linux alternative to clients who have OLD PCs. I don't want to be limited to Win98 since it will get no more security patches soon.
For example, I took a P2, 133 Mhz with 128 Mb of RAM to see how I could do with the distros I had.
- Linspire (forget it)
- Xandros (Video Bombed)
- Ubuntu (Crawled)
- Debian from scratch (Desktop load) worked the best, but my soundcard and modem not working
I didn't try Knoppix, but I want a hd install.
Can anyone give me some advice?
Thanks In Advance
