which flavor of linux
Posted on 2006-07-15
I am trying to setup 20 used dell workstations, mostly piii with 256 mb of ram. I am setting them up for a nonprofit with no money for pc. I want to put on a version of linux and then openoffice. I am an msce and know my way around a MS based machine fairly well. But I have never realy played with linux before but am willing to learn. My first question would be what flavor of linux should I use. I have seen many different ones out there. Of course there are many factors to consider, drivers, ease of setup, learning curve, end user interface. I would prefer to download the software, but purchasing media is acceptable. The ability to run windows apps (if possible) would be a bonus.
