I’ve been looking around the basement for a while, and found an old Desktop PC. At first I thought I could do something with it, but it seems it has ancient hardware and there seems little I can do to restore life to it. It currently has a 440Mhz Intel Celeron Processor, and has a 198 megabyte RAM card. I turned it on, and somebody messed with it so it had 330 megabytes RAM somehow, think it has something to do with increasing paging file size, but anyways.
What is the best operating system out there with the lowest system requirements? It has currently windows XP consuming 113mb when idle. Is there anything out there that either consumes well under 100mb on idle, or has great memory administration? Keep in mind it has an Intel Celeron processor, and a 198mb RAM.
Ive heard about Ubuntu, and Chrome OS but I have no technical knowledge to know if it Ubuntu, Chrome OS or anything else will truly revive this old PC and make it useful again. Any ideas?
