    Which Linux distro?

    I'm looking for a Linux distro to run on a second machine. All I need is a desktop and the capability to run OpenOffice and Thunderbird.

    System Spec:-

    AMD Athlon 64 3200
    2Gb DDR400 RAM
    80Gb HDD

    I'm currently using Ubuntu 9.10 but I'm finding it a bit slow. Any recommendations?

    Greetz.

    personally i would either go Slackware or OpenBSD. Ir really depends on how deep you want to jump in the *nix pond.

    Suse linux is a nice distro and will run rather smoothly on your system setup also.

    Never considered slack to have a "Cheesy" name. i've always found solaris name to be different.

    always get it confused for solarium for some odd reason
