I have an old Gateway Model MX6930 with 1 GB RAM. Looks to be a dual-core processor.
Been trying to run Windows 7 Home Premium, 32 bit but, as you might suspect, it's painfully slow.
It's just a mercy-machine, nothing on it that I can't lose but would like to keep it around for the basics - surfing, checking emails, etc. Don't really plan to do any heavy lifting with this, just would like to keep it chugging along.
I threw a Slacko Puppy disc and rebooted and it did what all good Puppy's do, it worked well.
Given the specs, got any ideas of any other distro that might work as well?
I know you can run Puppy from a USB, which I've done and liked but I would really like to actually install some OS (Frugal Puppy, perhaps?) on the machine itself, wipe off Windows and begin anew.
Ideas, suggestions and good coffee are all welcome.
