another option for you (and no it's nothing to do with ubuntu people ) is unity linux os (based on a slimmed down mandriva for old hardware and comes with openbox wm)

after looking around bobcat this looks perfect for you

snowlinux (debian based)

System requirements:

    256 MB memory (Cinnamon) / 128 MB (E17)
    2 GB free disk space
    Graphics card capable of 800×600 resolution
    CD-ROM drive or USB port

if i was you i would choose the e17 one as it needs less ram and is non pae

the cinnamon iso can be downloaded here

and the e17 non pae iso here

hope this helps

i think wattos may be an option as it's new user friendly , easy to install from live disk /usb and needs low spec computer

Hi   the  problem seems to be solved  i have re burnt   the cd`s in cdburnerxp at 4+ they  all work . in LINPUS i get error the please use kernal appropriate for your CPU but i guess that is the age of the computer
the next step is to get more RAM but Iam a 70 year old pensioner  on a tit
  budget tiring  to get to grips with technology  so thank you for your help.

sounds like a pae issue (In computing, Physical Address Extension ( PAE) is a feature to allow 32-bit x86 processors to access a physical address space (including random access memory )) if the computer cpu is not pae enabled it wont run certain linux kernels

here are some non pae distros

vector linux (slackware based)

solus (debian based)

pclinuxos (Independent (originaly forked from mandriva))

puppylinux (independant (i would not advise for a new linux user)) (PRECISE PUPPY IS BASED ON UBUNTU AND NO GOOD AS NEEDS A PROCESSOR THAT RUNS PAE ) slacko or wary will be fine if a steep learning curve

i think thease are ok for non pae

bodhi linux (based on ubuntu striped down for old computers)

linux mint (based on ubuntu (most versions ) or debian (for the lmde  version )

hope this helps

April Fools may have come early again this year, thanks to The Pirate Bay. Claiming to have been rehosted in that most closely held of countries, North Korea, could this ironic story actually be strange enough to be true?

if i was trying linux for the first time now i'd go for zorinOS as it's made for and comes with tools to make the transition from windows as easy as possible even down a "looks changer" to get the desktop looking like win' 7 or xp

this is the install guide

It's almost like we've been brainwashed by the multi billion dollar corporations advertising and marketing campaigns (not to mention governments) that as a species we're gradually losing our individuality and the ability to think for ourselves that's if we haven't lost it already, sometimes I wonder


that's what i think about it too mate  :)

just a thought are the download rankings the same for lq as distrowatch (just wondered if they are as it is a slight different type of end user for both sites (could include sourceforge and softpedia as well) just wondered thats all )
i know downloads have no meaning as a user satisfaction guide but someone has to be downloading (unless it's mark shuttleworth and Clement Lefebvre are rigging the results) after all newbies and code writers are two very different users etc.
