Arch-linux, not for beginners
I'm a somewhat technical geek and I occasionally like to experiment with diverse operating systems. Windows does most of the jobs anyway, but my computers have aged with pride and even though I stripped most functions off WinXP , it gives me headaches when it takes tea-break in the middle of a process .
Whilst rumaging through the web, I read that arch-linux can be completely fit to purpose (alternatively gentoo linux is equally good?). I manage to install and configure the kernel and even a graphical user interface (Xfce), but after this point the FAQ and guides become utter rubbish and they only talk in a linux-gibberish speech no life-scientist will bloody ever understand.
So back to Xubuntu, which will hopefully work properly on my dusty Athlon Thunderbird PC, with a mere 256MB RAM.
 I can only recomment nlite
