Lightweight Linux distros to revive old PCs

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxSo, if you want to revive an old PC (desktop or laptop) so it can be used for everyday tasks with Linux, what options do you have?
The following requirements should be met
  • it should be up to date. Stable is good, but up to date is needed for security fixes.
  • it should be possible to install it permanently (preferably from an installer on the live image)
  • it should be easy to install additional programs
  • it should have a large repository of additional programs, covering common, most-used applications
  • it should work out of the box with the hardware in the older machine; you shouldn't need to install additional drivers to get the hardware in the machine to work
A live image is helpful as it makes it easier to test a distro.
