My customer has a very lightweight PC that boots up and launches Google Chrome for the purpose of displaying a website on a screen in the lobby of his hotel. Similar screens are in each elevator. Each screen has its own PC, and that's all that the machine ever does.
They need it to just boot up and go to the website, without any user interaction (ever). I can administer it remotely if need be using Logmein Rescue, which I also use for my other customers.
Windows 8 is proving problematic. It boots very slowly, for one thing. I understand why - the machine only has 2 GB of RAM and a 1 GHz processor.
Can you please recommend a version of Linux to use, and hopefully a procedure to download and install it on a USB drive?
