I thought I would ask this here as this forum appears to have no bias to other distros.
I've been using various distros of Linux for the past two or so years and I like many, But I'm unable to find one I can stick with. I have a few factors that hamper several distros from entering my hard drive. My computer is aging and I am still looking to milk another year out of the old girl. Its a 1300 mhz pentium 4 Gateway with 768 mb ram and two hard drives, a 30 GB for distro and a 20 gb for storage.
I'm looking for a distro that is fast, clean and uncluttered with useless software I never will use but don't understand how to remove. I am wondering if someone could give suggestions on a linux distro that fits some of this criteria.
I like the ease of Ubuntu and the Ubuntu based distros but find they are becoming too bloated for my machine. I currently use a slackware based distro called Absolute but still with this one I am having some issues with the more complex file management system.
I simply just surf the internet, email, some chat, need frostwire, and photo management that picks up my ptp camera and my mp3 players.
Any suggestions that do not include MS would be great. I guess I'm wondering what others with similar hardware are using?
