    Distro selection

    I guess Zorin is good and stylish enough. It's beautiful and really fast but if you want a better experience you could go with Lubuntu / Xubuntu and modify it according to your needs (like change the desktop environment) You could also try Manjaro's XFCE edition. It's great for slow systems. Do...

    Great going! Manjaro should stay that way for a long time. It's good hearing that you gave that netbook a fresh start!

    Zenity - Create new user and password creator

    The code you gave works like a charm! What I understood from your code is that you created a temporary file test and made another file called test1 and transferred your code to it. You then set the password as the username1 file and delete both of these files. Pretty awesome! (Correct me if my...

    Best distribution for netbook?

    Great netbook! I would suggest Manjaro's xfce edition. Manjaro's really great and it's arch. It really runs smooth. If you want a debian distribution, I'd say lubuntu would be best for that netbook. And welcome to linux.org :)
