Linix For Compaq Evo N410C Notebook With Dock
Someone gave me a Compaq Evo N410C Notebook with dock for free. Currently it has 512MB of RAM but it is upgradable to 1GB. I put Peppermint Ice Cream on it last night and I wonder if I picked the right flavor of Linux for what I want to use it for. I want a small Linux OS that is easy to install emulators on. Possibly from Synaptic or some other distro packager. I do not have good luck installing Linux packages any other way. I just want to run retro gaming emulators (i.e. Sega Genesis, SNES, NES, etc...) plus put some other Linux games on it. I only want to use this for kicking back and relaxing. Once I get everything loaded, I don't really care if I have it connected to the Internet other than to occasionally dl more games.
I have a newer laptop running Win 7 64 bit that I use for my normal day to day stuff (email, bills, etc.).
Thank you :D
