Re: [vox] Linux for 880 Mhz computers ?



If it doesn't seem snappy enough running Linux you might consider FreeBSD or NetBSD, which some claim are a little more efficient than your average Linux.

Hi,

I am replacing my mom computer with a new one. So, I want to put a light
weight Linux distribution on the old computer and ship it to some of my
relatives in Brazil. I was thinking of installing Ubuntu 6.06 and then
changing the language setting to Protegees. The computer is a Dell
Dimensions L series with 880 Mhz, 128 MB Ram, and 20G hard drive. Also,
the operating system is Windows Millennium. Can some recommend a
different distribution for a old computer?

Thanks

Chris Horsting
