I've been asked to set up a desktop machine for a non-profit group where the public will be using the machine.
The desktop make and specs are yet to be determined.
The machine will be an older machine but not necessarily a *vintage* machine.
The machine will have at least 1 gig of RAM.
I thought I'd like to try Mint as I like the GNOME desktop. (I'm a Lucid Puppy and Ubuntu 10.04 user.)
Also, Mint has an admin password option as opposed to Puppy's wide open access.
I am looking for a solid OS that multiple, unskilled users will access.
It appears that Mint 13 *Maya* is the LTS OS, so, I've chosen that version for starters.
Which of the editions of *Maya* would you suggest for being the most proven and would suit this type of project?
Thank you in advance for your considerations.
Plain old debian is going to be the most stable. Debian is also legal to restribute. Linux mint offers versions without the illegal codecs in their download section.
