Re: Need an OS for an old thinkpad
To be honest, I'd look for an OS of the era of the machine.
perhaps an older version of Linux, or even windows 98.
Don't expect miracles from old machines, they just aren't really going to run OS's that were released years after the machine was released.
Of course the trouble with running an Old OS, (either MS or Linux) is that you're opening yourself to having old security bugs, this won't be 'as much' of a problem using Linux I think but it is something to consider.

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
