It boots Windows XP blazingly fast, has 1GB of RAM, 40GB hard drive, and is built like a tank.

"LinuxLite" is all you need when it comes to linux O.S.

[link to www.linuxliteos.com (secure)]

I've tried most of them (linux O.S.) over the years so I'm speaking from experience.

I think the 40gb drive is pretty funny. You can get a 64gb usb thumbdrive now for $10.

I'm guessing the memory is DDR2. Try to upgrade it to 2gbs.

Also try to swap out the hard drive for a 500gb one. You should be able to pick up a used one cheap.

I've been running Linux on an old Lenovo for a long time. They are tanks compared to new chit.

Don't hate on Windows.

I used to be all about Linux. Had the penguin Tshirt and all. I fucked around with all of it, Arch included. Eventually I got bored with it and went back to Windows.

Yes, a well configured Linux system is a bit faster than Windows, but not much. You can learn a fraction about Windows compared to Linux and really tune Windows up.

I don't like having to resolve problems and Linux offers up plenty of those. Almost always easy to fix they're still problems.

But Linux is fun and it does have it's place. If nothing else it'll teach you something about what's going on under the hood.

Arch if you want true Linux. Avoid system D too.
Ubuntu is just sickening and all associated distros are shit.

translation:

"i lost my sanity for a second and spent a non-zero amount of money on a 3kg (6lb) piece of junk with 40 minutes battery life that runs so hot it burns a hole in anything it stands on while rivaling a Boeing 747 in noise levels. It loads WinXP blazingly fast in just under 5 minutes which is a good thing because no mainstream apps run on that thing anyway except the viruses."
