LXer: How to restore a single-core computer with Linux

Published at LXer:

In a previous article, I explained how I refurbish old dual-core computers ranging from roughly five to 15 years old. Properly restored, these machines can host a fully capable lightweight Linux distribution like Mint/Xfce, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu and perform everyday tasks. But what if you have a really old computer gathering dust in your attic or basement?

I use a 2008 single core 1.2GHz Celeron laptop with 2GB ram as my daily email & forums computer, it's a little bit slow, but does the job, (also, use it for occasional web browsing, convenient, but not fast).
