Alright, so I got this little, itty bitty junker of a computer(6 gigs, w00t for me) so i'm thinking i'll use it for practice, and maybe a shell, but its got Windows 2000 or whatever on it, which looks/is crap for me. So I decided on Linux....I just don't know which to choose. Right now I have it running with SuSe(borrowed it from a friend). Anything better, or is SuSe good enough?
Its not a very well known Distro but a few might have heard of it. Its called PClinuxOs im running it on a ASUS L1400 with 1 Ghz processor 128 MB of ram and a 20 gig HDD and it runs pretty smoothly. Its easy as to install and is stronlgy based on madriva so its a pretty good distro

I've got a similar laptop (as far as specs go Compaq 1600s Presario) and I've got FreeBSD 6.2 up and running on it like a champ. Other distro's I have had on this laptop include Slackware 10.2, RedHat9, and Debian 2.2. The only issues I've had is when trying to load a heavier GUI frontend like Gnome or KDE, so Fluxbox is my window manager and it runs great.

Memories are nice, but that\'s all they are....memories.
You can\'t ever find a place that\'s nice and peaceful, because there isn\'t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you\'re not looking, somebody\'ll sneak up and write \'Fuck you\' right under your nose.
