Hi All,
I'm about to try installing a linux on an old laptop :


  • FIC 5600
  • currently (slowly) running under Window XP
  • proc : x86 265Mhz
  • physicial Memory: 2.25 Mo
  • physical Memory available: 23.36 Mo
  • virtual memory: 2Go
  • virtual Memory available: 1.96 Mo


I would like to use this old PC for C/C++ programming, so, all I need his a version of gcc/g++ and a text editor

Which version of ubuntu (or any other linux) should I use ?

Many thanks !
