Hello. I've been sifting through tons of forum posts and distro guides but I'm having trouble seeing what would be best for me. 1. I'm not sure whether my 2007 Macbook is old enough to need one of the more lightweight distros. It has 2GHz processor speed, 2 GB memory, and 200 GB HD. It's getting old and slow, which is one thing prompting a switch. 2. I am ready and willing to put the time in to learn how the OS and command stuff works. I like tinkering and customizing and learning stuff. 3. I could not quite figure out which distro will start off with the absolute basics and simple few applications (like a word processor and web surfer) and still leave a lot of room for me to build it up and explore other things I can do. In other words, I want something that starts simple and easy enough but not totally set up with everything for a total noob. 4. The main things I want to do with it is extensive word processing, web surfing, and just go from there to other things once I get better at the system. I really appreciate any advice you can give. I've looked at several things but there's so many it's starting to get a bit overwhelming all at once.
