Re: [school-discuss] recommended distro of Linux for PIII/600 MHz older PCs

Nope, this is Morris Brandon Elementary in Atlanta, GA. If I'm ever up near Edmonton, I'll let you know tho'.

I am making the assumption that this is Brandon Manitoba. Is this correct? If so are you intere3sted in coming to Edmonton to speak to the Computer Teachers conference early next spring?

Quoting Daniel Howard <dhhoward@xxxxxxxxxxx>:

Another thing we're contemplating at Brandon when we get all new thin clients as part of the district pilot rollout of K12LTSP is to take some of the existing systems that are PIII/600 MHz or better, install a distro of Linux, and donate them to Brandon families that don't have a computer at home, or don't have one the kids can use. Can anyone recommend a distro of Linux that would be fast enough on these older PCs, yet could still run Firefox, OpenOffice, Tuxtypes, etc. reasonably well?
