LiveCD try out for newbies
I've spent a few weeks fixing a laptop for my uncle; it appears the hard disk was buggered. Anyway, after fitting a new one, I've installed Windows XP and patched it to hell in the hope that it will stay reasonably secure and virus/spyware free (before I get it back again in 2 weeks to fix, full of malware and nasty stuff...)
Anyway, although my Aunt, Uncle and Cousins are far from the type of people interested in changing o/s, I'm thinking about giving them a LiveCD to try out when they feel like it.
They are non-technical, fairly computer illiterate people, who just want to surf the net, do some word processing, download some music, and play some games. Does anybody recommend a LiveCD distro for this scenario?
The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro A40 series P4/2.66Ghz, 256Mb RAM/40Gb Hd/CD-r/w
Iíve just realised Iíve formatted the Windows partition as NTFS, perhaps I should change that to FAT32 for Linux compatibility, or should I leave it as it is for added Windows security/stability, as that is what they will be using 95% of the time?
