I need a linux distro which will run nicely on my PC (I don't need beryl or compiz)
But I would like to have a Linux distro with nice interface (not as plain as Win 98) Preferably live CD.
I need it for browsing net, skype, word, excel, pictures, music, (home user)
Which Linux distro would you recommend???
I've been wrestling with an emachine (566i) 566 mhz Celeron but 512 mbs RAM. IT had windows me at purchase, I changed the modem (remember those?) and converted to Win 2k but it's just pooped. I managed to get Ubuntu 12.04 to run on an HP Netbook but it won't run on the emachine, downloaded Puppy and will try that. I'll also check the links in this forum.
