I have a dell laptop that the LCD backlight has died. I can't find anyone to fix it, so I bought an LCD monitor for viewing. I have another computer (desktop) that I used to use a few years ago. It still works, but I can't find my XP disc anywhere. I used to fiddle with Linux for a few years in the late 90's and early 00's.
Can someone recommend to me, in their opinion, the best distro to use on that Desktop? I only plan on having it as a backup file server. I just want to be able to network the two (wireless) so I can copy and paste what I need backed up.
Basically, I am not as technically skilled as I once was and need the absolute easiest distro that will allow my XP laptop to view my desktop hard drives and use them as a backup space.
thanks in advance
