Unscratchable_Itch: dentalhilljack: mark12A: I am a complete Linux -n00b-.Can anybody suggest a website that would lead me through the steps of wiping an old Windows XP machine and loading up Linux, configuring it and loading up a web browser/office software package? I'd really like to play with Linux, get the fark away from all the MSBS...I'm on an old XP machine, and instead of Ubuntu I went with Xubuntu. It's a lighter weight interface.Hey, dentalhilljack:Do you think Xubuntu would run OK on this old thingy: http://www.amazon.com/900HA-8-9-Inch-Netbook-Processor-Storage/dp/B00 1 GIPSAM/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_topPlease don't ask me why I bought it. I'd just hate to throw it away if it's still useable.I checked out the Xubuntu specs and it looks like it will - I have Ubuntu on it now but if Xubuntu has a lighter interface so much the better, and I'd like the advice of someone who is using it.Thanks in advance.
