I need to acquire a compact-size machine to replicate a simple software application running under Red Hat Linux 9.0 -- I know that Linux 9 has a little age on it and was concerned that support for some of the newer hardware (i.e. video, network interface) might be an issue.
I am sure that someone has blazed this trail before, and I was hoping for some guidance so that I can avoid making a bad decision and associated waste of time & money. Has anyone successfully used an HP Slimline PC in this particular setting? Would a different PC might be a better choice? Using a different OS would have to be a last resort solution.
Thanks in advance for all responses !
