Linux/Ubuntu recommendations


Hello Everyone,

If you guys don't remember, I just got a new PC. My old one, a Dell Dimension 8200, is just sitting in the closet sad and lonely. I'm gonna erase the hardrive, and slap some kind of OS onto it and give it to my brother so he can do schoolwork on it. The problem is, it's a old PC, with little resources.

The Specs:
Pentium(R) 4 @ 1.8 GHz
nVidia Geforce3 Ti 200
1GB RAM

OS Needs:
Must be very lightweight, I mean lighter than Windows XP
Easy to use
OS Wants:
Browser included with package (or at least a way for me to do a apt-get).
Clean interface.
Customization (My brother likes to be... special)

Any Idea , Suggestions would be appreciated,

Thanks,

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Your machine has plenty of resources for a Linux distribution running a desktop environment like Xfce, LXDE or Mate. Which Linux distribution are you familiar with? Are you familiar with Linux in the first place?

Apologies. Thread has been re-opened, it is not a duplicate and this was my error.
