Quote from: Atlantia on November 01, 2021, 01:08:24 PMHi All,I'm looking to move to Linux based OS's on my home PC's and I want to start (dip a toe in the water) with my slightly venerable desktop!I've never used a linux based OS before and although Im not a total PC novice, Im no means a tech savy I.T specialist either.So instalation and set-up needs to be straightforwards and idiot proof.I need basic PC features, a lot of web surfing, some word processing and basic photo/image editing.My PC is pretty old and the spec is:Processor: Intel Core 2 6600 @ 2.4GhzRam: 2.00 GBSystem Type: 32 Bit Operating SystemHard Drive: 1 TBI was looking at Ubuntu or Mint, but I'm not sure they'll work with my older 32 bit architecture?If anyone can point me to a good (100% free) OS that would suit, I'd be grateful.
QuoteI have no idea about md5sum... or how to open a terminal or command prompt in the directory, but hey-ho we learn by trying!I hope you won't mind some follow up questions if I get stuck?
