Re use of laptops
Now I know this is not the right forum for laptops but I have a number of older lap tops with linited memory which are still fully functional. I want to convert them to Linux with open office for some of our special need kids (mainly dislexics as we are the county dislexia unit).
Can anyone recommend a distro and desktop ( and where to get them) which would be suitable.
The laptops are mainly 800 MHz 128M of ram machines.
Thanks in advance
You could look at Xubuntu it's designed for less powerfull PC's.
If you're not au fait with DIY linux, Xubuntu or Edubuntu is a good place to start.
HI, I have been using PCLinOS 2007 (pc linux) http://www.pclinuxos.com/

I find it more like Windozzz.. more than 'ubuntu' is.:D
EDIT. I have tried Tinyme on an old 125MHz with 196Mb Ram and It worked !.
