    I should like install Linux in my notebook, but which distro?


    Which are the differences in distro Linux? (For example, if they have same kernel or no, if the difference is only the applications that contains, ...).

    I need a distro Linux with little requeriments and secure.

    My notebook has:

    - Processor: 1.70 GHz.
    - Ram: 1GB.
    - Hard disk: 150 GB.
    - Graphics card: 128 MB (Intel 915 GM/GMS).

    I want install Windows XP too. I think that first is install windows xp and after distro Linux, it's correct?

    About distro Linux, I think install Linux Mint, Ubuntu or ... I don't know...

    Bye ;)

    With those specifications you can install almost any distro you want.

    There is one basic kernel but different distros can tweak it differently.

    You should certainly install XP first. Windows is greedy and it wants to take over the whole disk.

    The "best" distro is the one YOU like and which suits YOUR computer.

    Linux Mint is like Ubuntu - with all the whistles and bells installed.

    Try Linux Mint. If you don't like it try something else.

    Windows XP has always been great..for the Linux part you should definitely go for the Ubuntu cause it is just the best..you won't be having any sort of problems with that..

    Thanks for your answer ;)

    I installed Ubuntu 9.10 years ago.

    The problem I see that new versions of Ubuntu need more requirements for 3D effects, those effects can't disable? (For the requeriments are less).

    I see Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with more support (until April 2017), this version it's good?
