    Really low spec linux distros?

    i once had some really old Panasonic ex-military tough book laptops.They also had only 128MB which wasn't enough from memory but if there is any way you could double that , then antix should work. Now there is also a problem with ram; you can't just use modern rma but have to get compatible...

    Distro selection

    if i was a psychology professor i would postulate that having a Windows look, might make it more difficult to use; since an image of Windows is going to have users expecting that it will behave like windows and of course it won't , so that will lead to a disappointment of expectation .

    MR ROBOT SERIES: Reference to linux slackware and kali?????

    i would approach the answer in 2 or 3 stages: 1) see how slackware plays out on your hardware; no point in trying a release 3 years old so follow this: https://linux.org/threads/get-slackware-current-live-onto-usb-stick-without-using-dd-command.27789/post-85306 2) i know nothing about mac os...

    this is the mirror for slackware live current http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware-live/1.3.5/ both the 32 bit and 64 bit xfce Desktop are less then one gig.

    Linux on MacBook Pro 2019

    i've read people installing slackware on macbooks before. Stable slackware is very old but current might be worth a go. Now if you boot an OS from a usb stick i.e LIVE; its still using hardware so what you see using a live OS for a distro should give you a very good idea, what that os would be...

Which...

    hey @daysaputra this ism y philosophy- you can read as much fishing books as you like; you then have "head knowledge" . the way to get actual knowledge is just to do some actual fishing. Thus google for some linux command lines and just try them. One question do you have the means of trying...

    Which distro for old laptop

    well as far as I can see Bodhi is basically ubuntu(and therefore a child-ling of Debian ) with LTS kernel with a nice Desktop ? So probably i would simply backup anything needed and follow that distro's way of a system upgradie . I mean you have nothing to loose. if it doesn't work out you can...

    newest kid on the block

    well i don't mind if you go for Mint; i'm trying to get you in a position to be able to do that. I think its safer to get up a live on usb first . But looking at your desktop you have neither rufus.exe nor salixos on your Desktop. If you look at that sort of bent arrow, it means you have...
