I have a Windows 98 computer that we still use (the hardware works just fine, but Windows is becoming a bit flaky and I'd rather go problem hunting and solving with Linux rather than Win98).
I'm looking for a very lightweight distribution (with a GUI, not command line) that is able to run the following:
- An email client which supports POP3
- A "more up to date" web browser (the banking website refuses to show up in the old Internet Explorer version it's running)
- An app able to open and modify Word and Excel documents
- FTP, DropBox, or some way to share and sync files with another computer
That is ALL the software that's needed (though, having Skype support would be helpful, but not required)
It uses a Pentium II Processor, which means it's CPU is between 233 MHz and 450 MHz (I can't seem to find the exact number from within Windows), and 256 MB RAM.
