with windows.

Old PCs reborn, with Linux.

Resurecting an old PC

| An install of something lighter and more secure is needed to put the machine
| back in service. The machine is a Dell Dimension L667R. It is only a 666 MHz
| machine with 128 MB, so even running a Linux distribution like a standard
| version of Ubuntu is going to be a stretch. I am settling on Xubuntu which
| sports the Xfce desktop. Since I am pushing memory requirements, I will give
| the alternate CD a try. If it works, I may even lay a little down to upgrade
| the memory, yay!

Windows was a pig hungry enough to spur purchases of PCs that will run Linux
for many years to come (maybe even KDE 4.0).
