I've recently installed Lubuntu 14.04 on my VERY old computer (circa 1997) and it's going very well. Tried many different distros, and spins, and this works best on this old box!
One issue I do have is the font size within a Terminal session - my eyes are much older than the computer! Is there a way to increase font or text size within a Terminal session? I looked around but could find a specific preference setting for making such a change.
