I've been using only Windows and have attempted to use Ubuntu a few times, but it wasn't as nice as my familiar Windows 7 box last year, although very snappy and fast.
But when it comes to Linux, I just don't know.
My main rig's video card broke, so I'm stuck with a an old laptop.
I have a Galaxy Nexus, and I also plan to start the slow process of learning how to build my own custom ROM for my phone. I figured Linux would help me with the speed of the old laptop, and get my started on my Android development.
Pentium M 1.5 GHz,
Radeon 9200 32 MB
1GB of RAM (Upgraded myself)
137 IDE HDD
(Super thoroughly cleaned and thermal paste reapplied)
It's going to be plugged into an external 1680x1050 monitor.
So.. which distro do I use?
I installed Lubuntu with the Wubi installer, but I found it just a little faster than my n-lite super stripped version of XP.
But what are your suggestions for those specs? What do you use?
I know that this topic has probably been posted quite a lot, but I want your current info. Any suggestions?
