Fastest Linux Distro for Good PC
I have a AMD Phenom II X4 Processor a ATI Radeon HD 5450 video card and 6gb of DDR2 RAM. I was wondering what the fastest (while still being stable) linux distro is. I have tried puppy linux, but since puppy linux is made for low-end computers is there an even faster linux distro if you have more RAM. All I will need to do on the computer is internet browsing, writing (LibreOffice), and run either Java6 or Open JDK. There are many articles for fastest distro for really bad pc, but what if you have an OK pc like myself? Is puppy linux still the best choice? BTW I am most used to Debian based distros (or even better Ubuntu), but would also try other distros, and yes I have tried Lubuntu, but I would like it to be at least as fast as Puppy Linux's Lucid version or faster. Thanks if you need any more info please post what you need to know. I am an ok linux user. Im past my Ubuntu starter days and feel ok using terminal, but I'm not nearly as good to do anything to complex such as recompile the kernel or something. If terminal commands are needed please tell me what I should type. Thanks again.
