I highly recommend Ubuntu 9.10. I've got it installed on my old
Gateway 5350 laptop (1.06 GHz Proc and 1 GB RAM) and it works great!
Even better, the Flash Player that get installed, actually plays the
Flash Games on Facebook. :)
I use a Linksys USB wireless stick and it works while same stick on
Windows XP with service pack 3 fails to connect. According to Cisco
SP3 broke something and it doesn't look like Cisco plans to fix it.
Once again, Linux to the rescue :)
