Need some advice on what Linux Distro to choose

Sorry to bother everyone but I'm trying to determine what Linux distro to use on an old HP Desktop dc5700, 1GB ram, and 80 GB hard drive.
I'm just starting to learn Linux and would like to put this old desktop to use.

Any advice and help would be very helpful and appreciated!

Thanks!

You can give Bodhi a try. Although, if you select something other than the Legacy version, it can become as big as any Linux distro, but it seems to work very well on a variety of lightweight computers and the moldy-oldy hardware, too. I;m using it right now on my older Toshiba laptop, and it definitely does NOT strain the 2GB RAM or Celeron 2840 CPU that it has.

Thanks for this. Might just use this one on my old Dell 610 laptop. Trying to get some use out of these old PC's plus I will be the only one who can use them (hopefully!).

Thank you,

I hope it works for you. Zorin keeps a good consistently reliable distro, some others get worse after major changes to new releases.

Thank you for the tip. I'm going to try a couple of distros to see what works best for me. Will give this one a try for sure.

Thanks again,

Hey,

Thank you very much for the list! I've got 3 old desktops and 1 old laptop so I am going to try a few different distros and see which one works the best for me. I'm just learning and this will keep me busy now that we can't go to work! Definitely won't get bored.

Thank you,
