Due to COVID-19, we are trying to distribute laptops to children (Year 5/6) (8-10 years of age), to help them with remote teaching requirements, e.g. email and web browsing.
These families are socially disadvantaged in the UK, they have very little money, and technology and their children are socially disadvantaged, no phones, no internet, no laptops, no computers etc but they can use library resources free in the UK.
We have stacks of old laptops we would like to refurbish, with a Linux Distro.
Here is the rub, these laptops are 20 years old, but working they originall came preinstalled with Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP.
Pentium 800MHz, and 128M RAM - and run those OS fine...
(in fact there are Compaq N150) - pallet load!!!!
Where are the Linux Lightweight Distros gone?
Please check before you post your recommendations, still researching what Linux Distros are available which will run in 128MB! (in fact it's 124MB because 4MB has been allocated to GPU).
and email and browser is required, because some distros e.g. Slax states 500MB for browser!
Before you tell me, for these Children, it's better than nothing!
