I've recently acquired the above named laptop from a friend of my dad's. When I got it home, you could imagine my shock to find no USB, no CDR, not even Ethernet :eek: There was a standard desktop power cord in the case, which clearly didn't fit, and after tearing through my rat's nest of collected cables, I was pleased to find the power cord for an old Nikon camera would power the laptop.. she started without batting an eye- right into windows 95 :!:
Now I'm looking for input on good uses for such a machine. I'd like to have a decent OS that frees up some resources that perhaps my kids could use it, or maybe it would be useful in some other cool way.
I'm an Ubuntu user and fairly comfortable with linux in general. I spent some time researching options but I don't have any experience with any of the distros mentioned, so I came here hoping for some good feedback.
Any input would be appreciated.
