Need advice on which linux OS to use and which software will work on it?
Ok I have a HP Compaq Armada m700 which is an older laptop. It only has an 850processor and 512mb memory. It was running windows XP3 pro but something is corrupt. I would like to switch to linux because is cheaper. Here are my questions:
1. Which linux to use?
2. Will linux work with my wireless card?
3. Is there compatable free or cheap software?
(wordprocessor, presentation software)
4. Is it easy to install and will it compleatly wipe out windows?
I know this is a lot of info so I appreciate the time and help
