Default Re: Help a linux noob!

Linux normally works well on older computers. The big 'flagship' distros usually run well on machines that are a few years old and there are often alternatives for even older slower computers.

In the Ubuntu group, Ubuntu is the flagship: Xubuntu and Lubuntu are two lighter weight alternatives.

Some distros, such as Puppy Linux, are deliberately designed to run on minimal hardware - if you have an ancient PC from the Windows 95 / 98 era that would struggle to run even Windows XP, Puppy will run on that and give a surprisingly​ modern and peppy experience.
