    Ok, I am going to put cAos Linux on an old comp. It is running a Pentium 2. So, under my circumstances, should I download the i386 version or the x86_64 version? Any help would be appreciated

    cAos Linux is a community maintained and managed, RPM based Linux distribution. It combines aspects of Debian, Red Hat/Fedora, and FreeBSD in a manner that ends up with a solution that is stable enough for servers and clusters, utilizes a long term life cycle, and built from current cutting edge packages. It also includes many of the features that are considered standard for desktops and laptops, which makes it a very good general purpose Linux distribution.

    The cAos Project is part of a larger organization (The cAos Foundation) which is a team of open source developers working and leveraging resources together. The Foundation allows us greater flexibility and reliability with all of the hosted projects by providing funding, support, administration, and management/decision making assistance.

    But I think that we must stop spamming for cAos, otherwise moderators will lock the thread
