    Both work on old machines.Thanks!
    There are 2 other distro based on Ubuntu that can be used to on old computers.
    Bodhi Linux and Madbox Linux

    Here in Romania we also try to tell people about the expiration on Windows Xp.
    In schols and public administration there are a lot of old computers runing Xp, when xp will expire the old computeres must be changed but with this financial crisis and all there are not much money.

    mastablasta, Something must be wrong with your laptop then, because when i used XP (I still do, alongside Ubuntu), I used it on a laptop made in 2000 or earlier and it NEVER crashed, and it booted up in 10 seconds, and it was only 500mhz fast with 256 mb of ram.

    XP is still going EoL. MS will still be providing updates for MSE on XP until 2015.

    Competition?

    Nice to see you've done 18 machines - but the real result is in having the same number using it in a year's time

    So the only company dropping support for XP this year so far is Microsoft, and even they'll still be supporting it.

    There are some things that you did not consider.
    From april 2014 it will be harder to fiind compatible aplications for XP .
    I use Ubuntu and Debian but my frinds ask me often to install on their computers .exe aplications .
    I did not use Windows for a lot of years and i lost track and i find out that i could not install some aplications like Antivirus, Yahoo, codesc, browsers.

    Finaly i realised that they were using XP SP2 that was expired.
    If aplications made for XP SP3 wont work for XP SP2, do you think that aplications made for Win 7 will work on XP SP3 ?

    Re: Say Goodbye to Windows XP - StartUbuntu Project

    I have some users on XP with HP computers and HP happens to have its own Linux distro called HP FreeLnx. It is based on Debian Squeeze with Gnome 2 and not much anything added to the base distro but HP wallpapers and logos. Cairo dock and Skype look to be the only apps added to the base. I tried to update it to Wheezy but too many broken core packages to fix. So I harvested all the HP stuff and I'm now building an Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 desktop. They used the Plymouth Dandelion boot splash so I had to figure out how to get that onto Ubuntu but everything else is easypeasy. They had some HP desktop themes but they weren't working and were debianugly anyway.

    here's the Dandelion boot splash someone recorded
