Putting Linux on my old computer

caddo mancaddo man Failure is success in progress!Posts: 22,318 ✭✭✭✭✭
I am about to put Linux on my old laptops. Just looking at the ones I have now. It will be Ubuntu and Cloudready: Never ware for the very old ones.

I will also change them all to SSD. I am trying to find some cheap SSDs to buy.

These laptops will generally be for my mom, nieces and nephews to crash and fuck over.

Anybody ever fuck with Neverware. I have Ubuntu on my very old PC. Shit runs like a champ and the apps stay current.


The IC Law (please read before posting)

You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in the threads of the IC.
If you are a female, You have the right to talk to another poster and have him present with you during an exposure.
If you do not have another poster to save you, one will be appointed to represent you, if you post a proof pic of yourself with a timestamp. Representation will be aquired if your pic is deemed simp worthy. All posters are consider a male until a proof pic or vid is provided.

The Intelligent Waiver

Do you understand each of these rights as I have explained them to you?
Having these rights in mind, do you wish to post a proof pic(for females) or tell us your personal story now?

    @caddo man Personally I use CentOS, Kali, and sometimes Fedora. I need to maintain some level of compatibility with my clients and they use either Red Hat or CentOS.

    For a personal machine that you're just screwing around with, Fedora should be fine. I wouldn't invest in SSD's unless the current drives are on their last leg, and even then I'd probably just hit up Newegg for some cheap hard drives instead of SSD's.

    I have Kali on an old Dell Mini 10 netbook (Intel Atom N450). Changing the default desktop from Gnome3 to MATE gave a drastic increase in speed. Gnome3 is very heavy handed as a desktop environment. Changing to MATE (which is a fork of the older, much faster Gnome2) or XFCE will speed things up tremendously.

    Personally, I wouldn't fuck with Neverware and stick to Fedora or Ubuntu for your older machines.
    i'm not sure which entity leaves people more abused and lost; the Porn Industry or Bad Boy Records.
