I have an older sony vaio laptop that I wanna try to install linux on which one OS would be good to use. 2.0 ghz intel core duo t2450 with 2gb ram. Model pcg-7y2l. I am new to linux which one would be easy to install and to learn on.
I like Mint (I use it myself) and it will probably run okay also, but it may be a little slower than the others I listed. If you go with Mint, I would suggest either the MATE or XFCE desktops, rather than Cinnamon.Back in early 2000's I ran redhat for a bit then I lost interest in computers. I heard Sony vaio's aren't always the best laptops to use Linux. I'm really interested in trying Mint so ill see if I can boot it live from disk and check out if everything works esp the wifi. Bought a book for Linux commands just to read and learn. Any other advice for a newbie?
