    Thumbs up What To Choose From, Hmmm


    I have been looking about for a linux distro for my recent linux box. The distro has to be light on the system as I will be running it on a:

    - 333-800MHZ Intel 2-3 processor, 128-256 RAM, 5-10 GB HD, WiFi PCMIA card.

    I want to run OpenOffice, Thunderbird, Firefox, Aircrack, and some more general tools nothing fancy. What Linux OS do you recommend me running?

    Xubuntu or Debian.

    if find distro very slight, I recommend Puppy Linux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hi and Welcome !

    There are a lot of distros available for older machines. Check this poll and pick any.
    Do start a new thread if you have any other question.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
