I'm trying to find a distribution to put on my old pc (1300mhz, 512mb DDR, 10 year old Intel graphics card).
All I need is a browser, pidgin (yes, it has to be pidgin), and remote desktop. I'm going to use it for a torrent box, as well. Various media applications would be useful, but not necessary. I'd like it to preferably be something based off of Ubuntu, or anything that uses .deb, but if another one meets the requirements I will be willing to try it. It also must be under 700mb, because it doesn't have a DVD drive.

I am positive something similar has been posted, but I searched for a while and there were way too many results to go through and too many combinations of words to use.
