their own website would be the logical starting point. Doubt it's really any good compared to the more common usual suspects like Ubuntu. If you want to pretend you're using Windows XP that badly, why bother?

Then puppy linux or damm small linux is something you are looking for. But even Ubuntu can run on those specs though wont run as fast and quick.
