I am johnsmith a new to Linux. Anyways I have been using the distro of suse linux, and I find it to be not to my needs. I need a distro that is easy to use. I was looking into mandrake Linux. So I was wondering if mandrake runs well under old computers something with a Pentium processor 1 with 3 GB HD Space. Also is mandrake as easy as it says it is?
Simple Questions About Mandrake Linux
Linux Mandrake or now commonly called mandriva Linux is the one of distro Linux that gave priority to convenience for its users, especially for the beginner in Linux world.
However, if you are using an old computer with specs Pentium 1 and a 3 GB Hard disk space, I would suggest a Linux distro that is lighter than mandriva.
You could try using VectorLinux standard version, it will run smoothly with 64 MB RAM. You can also use the dsl or puppy Linux as an alternative option.
Hopefully my answer enough to help you in determining the appropriate Linux distro. If you still feel confused, you can follow the Linux forums on the internet.
