Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer,

I've never seen it before, but the fact that it has Telnet in the menu indicates that the operating system is old, and therefore most likely no longer supported.

"No longer supported" in Linux, means that the system will be vulnerable due to not receiving security updates, and the included software will also be old and outdated. You would not be able to install software from the repositories, because they will no longer be active.

If you would like advice on what Linux operating systems might be suitable for you and your computer, please start a new thread with an appropriate title.

No problem, and you're welcome.

I'm curious though, why is it that you want this particular operating system?

If you have access to this machine you can try some Terminal Commands, are you familiar with the Terminal, like CMD in Windows?  

 

The Commands don't always work either but there easy enough to try.  Maybe a Wallpaper would give a clue, then we could find the proper command to use, they are distro specific in many cases.  See if you can find the Desktop Wallpaper Choices and take a look, maybe you will see one with the distro name.

What Linux distribution was being used by Elliot in the TV series Mr. Robot?

Kali Linux. Its clearly identifiable in episode 5, where he ssh's into the cops computer.


Is that the one? If so, it's designed for experienced penetration testers and not beginners, but here it is here:

https://www.kali.org/

Good work Al, that made me laugh!

@speed51ck, I think this is the best advice, we see a lot of newcomers to linux and can provide many opinions based on what you want and your pc specs.  Using more popular distro's is also a good idea - IMO - so that you can get help easily.  If I were choosing a new distro, I would look at their support forum to see how much help and activity is going on there.  You could also go with one of the more popular distro's folks are using here, because this is a great Forum!

It uses the Debian installer, so you can choose which desktop you want during installation. The new version of Gnome is nothing like the old one; the Mate desktop would be the closest thing to the old version of Gnome.

I've never heard of that one, but have used Xubuntu on which it is based.

Now that your original question has been answered, this thread has run its course.

Please start a new thread if you wish to discuss anything else.

Just a postscript - Dharma, XBMC and Kodi is the equation, all around the 2010 - 2011 region

 

This from https://kodi.tv/dharma-branched/

And the dead giveaway to Mr Robot was Ray Heyworth.

 

Yes, they referred to Kali (perhaps Backtrack at that stage), but no, this wasn't it.
