TobsiSDG - Maybe I don't have Xandros. My system has updates from 2009.
OK, may be I should have sorted that out better. The last release of Xandros was in 2007, I think that there were updates some time after that. But even if your last update was 2009 that means that you have software on your machine that didn't get any fix in the last two years.
What is a distro
A distro (short for distribution) is a set of programs on top of a Linux kernel. You can also call it a flavor of Linux. There are many different distros out there, you may have heard about Ubuntu, Linux Mint and others. If you want to have an overview about the distros you should have a look at Distrowatch.
how do I check to see what distro I have?
There should be a file in your /etc-folder that has the word release in its name. It should contain the name and version of your distribution.
Many distros are based on Debian (Xandros, too), and not all of them change the name in the release file. I am pretty sure that it is Xandros that you are running.
You may want to have a look at Distrowatch for choosing a new distro, for a machine in that class I would recommend to go for a lightweight distribution, like Lubuntu, antiX, wattOS or Vector Linux.
