distrowatch gives an clue as to whether a distro is still updated/maintained and if it's a desktop or server or media or a special use distro.
if you want to read real people's opinions in forums, you can search back 1 or 2 years. i like to search with words I imagine people use when discussing:
"user friendly"
piii | pentium3
"core 2"
ddr2 (that one probably not a good search word)

so, example
userfriendly intitle:ubuntu intitle:vs 512mb inurl:forum | discussion "office apps"
was too strict a search. a little editing gives:
more editing:|+athlon+vs

torrent a few distros, liveusb to try them.
(i ran unetbootin from windows, not usb. maybe that's also easier for you.)
