Hello, I have an old desktop computer with an Intel P3 600mhz cpu, 128mb ram, a generic 3.5 floppy, and a Yamaha crw f1e cd/rw. I can't afford another computer right now and my wife has her own and uses it ALL the time so hers is NOT an option for me. I installed Ubuntu on this thing and it just overwhelms it. Everything drags like the whole system is on a 14k dial-up. I wait on the terminal window and everything else. I think the ram is the issue. Anyway, to the point. Is there a Linux distro that has a decent gui that will allow a user to browse the net, save pic, music, and video files, and play games (java in particular) online, without all the clutter of a thousand programs I'll never use, that will NOT DRAG on the system I described above? I am absolutely new to Linux but I'm not totally incompetent (some may have a different opinion
) so I don't mind if I have to do some work on a distro to get it minimal (installing java, various media programs, etc.) as long as I can get online I can figure the rest out
. The smaller the distro that will allow this THE BETTER.
Thanks in advance, Rob G
