Ubuntu 5.10. Linux is a great alternative to Windows XP, especially if you're too poor to afford the high price it costs. Both have great looking UI's, but Linux is FREE! Windows XP might run fine, but you should use the classic theme to be safe.

Not too mention alvino...you only tried Ubuntu which runs gnome, you can also run Kubuntu which is the same thing only with KDE which alot of people prefer.

True, I've only used Ubuntu, but I love it. It's easy to use and it's actually fun to play around with.

The computer doesnt have kilobytes RAM, its got 256MB. The processor is 600Mhz with speedstep, so about 700Mhz max, it could do with a RAM upgrade, but I think 256 is ok for now if hes having Windows Lite and 2000.
