Hey all, wasn't quite sure if this was the right place for this question but here goes--
A few months ago, I was looking to make a really old laptop I have more useful. I already have a nice desktop so if anything happened to the laptop I wouldn't be that concerned. Ah,
I thought--A perfect opportunity to try out some flavor of linux!
I partitioned the disk so I had separate drives for Windows, a swap, and one for actual data/files. Onto a fourth partition, I tried placing Xubuntu since I had heard it runs well on older systems. Now, Xubuntu does work...except it takes longer to boot into and I seem to have the same memory problems that I had in my windows partition. So, my question is this--how does Linux Mint compare to Xubuntu? What about Linux Mint XFCE edition? And if they'd run about the same, any ideas for what could be even better?
My basic specs are that it's a 800mhz processor with 128m ram. If you need more specifics I can boot it up and check.
