Running Linux on Old PC

I currently have with me installed Windows XP. It works fine, it's just that I have only Pentium 4 and 496MB of ram With a speed of 2.27 GHz so opening all the programs for awhile makes the PC slow and it doesn't help my productivity. I just installed Ubuntu (latest one) but it was a disappointment, Windows XP ran better than Ubuntu. What are a good list of linux operating systems which has a graphical interface? I only use these programs:

  • xchat
  • google chrome
  • sublime text editor
  • wamp
  • git bash

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@slhck that first one is merged to a deleted question :\ –  Bob May 29 '12 at 11:05
Welcome to Super User, by the way! Asking for a list of recommendations is not considered constructive and therefore off-topic. Please check questions that have already been asked on that subject, and do a little research yourself. There are plenty of lightweight Linux distributions available. –  slhck May 29 '12 at 11:05
@Bob I know, just happened to see it, it's what the duplicate box suggested, that's why I added the other links too. –  slhck May 29 '12 at 11:05
