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

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?

Aloha Daniel

For our Computer Guts program, we use Edubuntu. It meets all the above-stated needs.
