First of all I would like to thank all the guys who help us new users. Ive so far managed to fix ALL my problems using the SEARCH tool. And now have a stable, up-to-date system with all the programs I want configured that way I want So for all the help...I say THANKS!
Now, Here is my question:
Im a student and I stay away from home (in a diff country). And though I call home, I chat using yahoo and voice using skype is a very important mode of communication between me and my family. I have a decent system so Ubuntu works great on my pc. But this is what my folks have:
A Pentium 2 - 450 Mhz
128Mb shared ram with 32mb alloted to memory
6Gb hard drive
OS- Windows ME (not working anymore)
So my question to you is, Which OS (Linux) do you guys suggest? Now there is nothing but Ubuntu that I would them to use. But, looking at the system specs I really do not know if it would run at a usable level. So my dear friends, could you suggest any distribution that is simple and works on the above mentioned specs?
So far on Searching I have found that:
1.Ubuntu is too heavy, but Xfce/fluxbox can be a way out
2.DamnSmall Linux is good
3.Puppy Linux runs great and I can create a custom ISO with all the programs custom added to the ISO (?)
I am currently leaning towards Puppy linux as it has the custom Iso feature (since I would have to download/burn the ISO and send it to them I can put all the applications that they would need). But since this is the only place I know that can give me a sincere suggestion..I ask you..what should I do... where should I look? Which distribution would you suggest?
Thank you for your time, suggestions and thoughts.
