Re: Lubuntu Has Breathed New Life Into My Old Machine
I had a guy purchase a refurbished Dell P4 system from me, and he brought me an older Dell P4 system that wasn't booting (had XP on it). The system only had 256MB memory, so I added 512MB for 768MB total. I also replaced the failing 60GB HD with an 80GB. I installed Lubuntu 11.10 and it is running great! I am charging him for the extra memory and replacement HD, but it's like he is getting a new computer for $60, thanks to Lubuntu!
