>> Hi,

He's into graphic art, but has never used computers.  Someone gave him this old computer, he wants to see if it's something he would use before buying one....

If it has enough memory.  The trouble with old computers is that they 
aren't very good adverts for new computers.

Remember that win95 would run in 32 meg of memory, or 4 meg according to 

What spec is this '95 box ?  Even if the hardware is up to is, I'm not 
sure that any worthwhile version of Scribus would work on '95 ?

If trying Ubuntu, look at Mint, a distribution which is derived from it 
but said hereabouts to be better ?  Let us know how you get on.  My 84 
year old mother wants broadband so I was thinking of Mint for that.
