Best version of Linux for old computer.
I have a old Dell dimension l600r from like 1999 and I want to be able to use it with some type of version of Linux or some other free OS. I plan on using to do programming on. C++ and Perl mostly.
The hardware is:
CPU - Pentium |||-600
RAM - 256MB (I upgraded it from 128MB to 256MB)
Hard drive - 10GB
Intel graphics with UMA and 4MB of 3D cache
Optical Drive - 22x-48x CD-ROM
Networking - V.90 modem, Ethernet card
OS - it came with windows 98 SE
Anyone have any suggestions?
