Good Linux Distributions for Newbies
I will be setting up a computer for people who have very little experience using computers and I want to limit their ability to break things. I'm thinking Linux is the way to go but I don't know what distribution to use. I don't know anything about their hardware other than it is an old laptop. I don't have a lot of experience with Linux, but I would think that without
sudo there is not a lot of things you can break.
- What would be a good Linux dist that has everything out of the box? (flash, vnc, office, etc)
- How should I set up the user account to avoid giving them too much power, yet still allowing the computer to be useable for daily tasks? (Will they be able to update software?)
- I also want to be able to control the machine remotely since I won't have physical access after I set it up, so I am looking into ssh, vnc, (or a better alternative?). Any suggestions, tips in that area would be helpful.
