comment Which Linux Mint flavor is most suited for a 2.6Ghz + 500MB RAM computer?
I tried Linux Mint XFCE & twas nice overall. When it came time to upgrade this week, accidentally installed Gnome version which was subtly slow. BTW, all these news about a new version of Linux Mint, was it only for the Gnome version? All other mint flavors are still at v9. Once tried Fluxbox briefly (or was it Openbox?) & found accessing menu via desktop mouse right click odd for usability. I may be far techier than average ppl but @ heart I just want something that works. Hence, my current situation: Trying to see which Linux Mint is the best. btw, is Fluxbox faster than XFCE?

Having said that, I dislike Windows for its security history & want to try something new (It's how I tested & discovered Opera years before the IE->FIrefox browser migration)

Despite being "old", Windows XP is quite solid (overlooking security admittedly). There's no real reason, unless you're a gamer I suppose, to get a new machine and grab Windows 7.

Would you say that XFCE, FVWM, or Fluxbox is the fastest?

Showing my newbness here but what is the "desktop" and "window manager". Isn't XFCE the whole package?

On a slightly off topic, why is it that while running Windows XP, everything runs fairly well on the same machine (dual boot) but no matter what Linux OS I've tried, the specs seem to be a problem

Makes sense. Attempted once more at noon & worked just fine. Perhaps I panicked too quickly last night. Gave me a good scare though. Thanks guys. btw, would download the ISO but I don't want to waste CD/DVDs
