I want to install Linux on my old laptop from 2006 February. Primarily I want to use it for lightweight coding and browsing the internet.
some web design tools (i have some in mind)
It's specs are:
Notebook: Acer Aspire 5003WLMi
Processor: AMD Turion 64 ML-32
Graphics Adapter: SIS Mirage 2 M760 128 MB
Display: 15.4 inch, 16:10, 1280x800 pixels
I just took the Linux Distribution Chooser quiz and its recommendations are OpenSuse and Fedora. Linux Mint was in the additional recommendation. I was hoping that Lubuntu / ArchLinux would show up as I read that these are minimal distributions; please correct me if I am wrong about this.
One thing I definitely want is to install whatever software as and when I need and not get a lot of software preinstalled.
Please suggest your recommendations.
