So I have this old notebook that’s sitting at home and that I fire up occasionally. I’m running Windows 98 on it, but since my other machine is also on Windows, and my computer at school is a Mac, I thought I could cover all my bases by switching it over to Linux.
So I hopped on to http://www.linux.org/dist/list.html and much to my horror found that there are some 69 distributions that fit my criteria. My questions are thus:
-How are they different?
-Which one would be best for an oldish PII machine, that never goes on the net?
-Any distro to avoid like the plague?
-Is it worth to spend the money, when free versions exist?
