Thanks for that, TobiSGD. I have compiled on Ubuntu (with rather a lot of help) a DosBox version that runs all my legacy software and has full printing capabilities. There are a number of other Apps that I use, and need, all of which I presume may not run on other distros than Ubuntu; but again I am no expert in this.
Anyhow, I have looked at WattOS, Bodhi and Lubuntu, all of which will probably run OK on my machine. I have also found Xubuntu, but both the Lubuntu and Xubuntu Website tend to use Lawyers speak when describing the minimum hardware requirements; like you should have at least 512Mb of RAM but it will run in 256Mb. Well, does it work OK in 384Mb or not? That is the question. If you compare say Xubuntu and Lubuntu, Xubuntu can actually run on a lower spec machine than Lubuntu; but can it? It's not terribly clear from the Website. I guess the only people that can make some definitive statements are the users, and that is the feedback I am hoping to get.
