Debian vs Ubuntu vs Damn Small
First of all, happy new year to all of you, I hope Santa got you what you wanted! :)
I need a new OS for my old laptop as it's getting extremely slow to do basic things. I have already read the poll about slower machines, the problem is, I don't have an understanding what IS slow specs-wise. My specs are the below:
Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHz
704MB of Ram (2 sticks)
XP Home Edition Pack SP2 does not work! I cannot even surf the web! Can I get away with something such as Ubuntu or shall I go with something more basic such as Damn Small?
Btw, I need my new OS to be simple to use (never done anything with Linux before). I'll be doing basic things such as using Open Office, surfing the web, and viewing videos/pictures.
Many thanks in advance!
