I have this Compaq 7800 series laptop, 266M P2 processor, 8GB HDD, 512MB ram. It runs windows XP now and is slow. I was looking to install Linux onto it for basic browsing and nothing much else. Any suggestion on what distribution to use?
I was thinking a light edition, something that uses Xfce as the desktop environment. Xubuntu? Anything else that is more bare bones? The one thing that I am worries about is drivers for such an old laptop.
