View Full Version : [all variants] Juke box?

July 13th, 2010, 06:04 PM
Hi guys, today I got my hands onto an old laptop, an acer something that is probably 10 years old or so. My idea is to turn it into some kind of digital juke box to be used as a storage from where i can play my music, some kind of a bigger ipod. I was thinking about using ubuntu as the O.S. but i was wondering how to proceed:

1 - isn't ubuntu too heavy? will it be lighter if i remove all the unneeded programs or the boot time and memory usage is not linked?

2 - what's the best software to organize a digital collection if compared to memory usage?

3 - probably off topic, but maybe you guys know of a distro that would be better suited for my project
