I will look into these two. There are so many to choose from which make it
difficult to make a decision. I'm not sure about this machine. it is at
least four years old and only has 256 megs of ram on it and probably not a
very fast processor anyway. I am just using this as a test machine right now
because I didn't have to lay out any money for it. There are some other
problems as well with screen breaking up into random patterns in portions of
the screen. This seems to happen especially when I am running Firefox.
Anyway thanks for the suggestion. I was also looking into LinuxMint and
OpenSUSE as both of those have been suggested as being better than Ubuntu
(along with a couple others). I I tried to download OpenSUSE and it takes
forever and have not been able to get it to work on this machine. LinuxMint
was going to take about as long to download so I scrapped that this morning.
Someone at work is going to try and get some OpenSUSE discs so we shall see
what happens.
