SO here I am on this part of the forum!
The reason why is first because I own an old desktop pc with Windows xp on it and second is that I'm curious and want to learn more about this OS and maybe use it for fun on my Windows 7 laptop.
Here are the specs of my old desktop:
- Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 2.93GHz
- 2.93GHz, 504 Mo RAM
And these are from my Windows 7 Laptop, an Acer Aspire 5755G:
- Intel® Core i7-2670QM 2.2GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz)
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M, Up to 4095MB Turbo Cache
- 8GB DDR3 Memory
- 750GB HDD
Which Linux distro would be the best for the old desktop pc? Which Linux distros are the lightest? Can my laptop run all of them?
In the beginning I would use them from a CD (big enough?) and the distro I like the most & is best suited for the desktop pc will be installed. I already did a DVD with Ubuntu 14.04.2 but it doesn't boot on both machines, although other DVDs and CDs work fine... Is the DVD maybe broken? It has nothing to do with the writing I did on the top side of it or has it?
I'll stop with the questions for now ^^
I would be happy with a response :-)
