Not to old to learn
 
I am new to all this and the number of distro's available is overwhelming.
I have only been on the web for about 6months now and I am learning a great deal about anything I can think of, the only problem with any of this is the number of Linux OS's available.

I have a older Toshiba Satillite 1555CDS, and I haven't began to understand which application would be right for me. I am interested in the internet and the news and articals available. I am trying to learn something new to do for a occupation, I was injured 1 and 1/2 years ago and I am trying to figure something that I can learn to earn a living off of.

I enjoy the threads that are posted and have been learning as I gol If anyone knows of a distro that would be easy to download and run, I would apreciate the help. Right now I have window xp wsp2 and have had to re-boot 5 times in the last 5 months, twice in one day. Time to let it go.

I enjoy your sight and the information you make available, also I can understand most of it for a change. Thanks once more.

Hi and welcome to LQ :D I'd suggest you look into Ubuntu, Knoppix, Mepis if you want something to run as a live cd prior to installing.

Thank you for the information, any type will help. I have heard of these three, also Damn Small Linux, Archer, and ect. I will order a Live CD as soon as I can, also I requested a copy of Ubuntu. I have also heard of Sarge lately but have not found any info on how much, where to order, and information in general on the OS.

Like I say there is alot to choose from, in most ways it seems overdounting to say the least. By the way I only have a 4gigabyte hd, AMD K-6 360Mgz. Like I said it is a old system, but has been a good machine to learn on.

Thank you for taking time to help me,

Sarge is downloadable. I'd suggest you read the LQ Distro Reviewsand Distrowatch and see what's available. Then go to LQ's Distro Download Section and take a few for a spin.

Thank you once more for information concerning Sarge, I tried a couple of Linux sights and didn't find anything except DownLoad.

Thany you,
Beekers
