I have been gifted a 'new' Dell computer with the above specs-- Sempron 3200+, etc. Right now it is running XP Home (SP3) somewhat slowly. I don't know if that is due to crap on the drive or if XP is just that slow on this processor. I don't have an installation disc for this machine, otherwise I'd wipe and reinstall (I have an XP Pro disc, but unsure whether I have a valid license). So, I am considering installing a Linux on it. I am wondering if Ubuntu or perhaps Mint would work better on this thing. The goal is to provide a 'gaming' machine for my two grand-daughters, both under the age of two at the moment. Any comments, suggestions, condemnations?
