'Do not discard that old PC or laptop yet. You can use a lightweight
Linux distro to make them as good as new. Some of these Linux distros
are specifically for use in older machines.
You can use any of the lightweight Linux distros and bring your old
machine back to life. In as much we focus on the old distros, we do
have some new releases that do not require many resources that can
re-invent your old computers.
Are you in any or all of the situations below?
- Your computer is but still feel like you can revive it
- Your computer is modern but runs on low power
- You need to install a modern computer to reserve resources to other
If you find yourself in any of the above situations, then the best
choice of action would be to start looking for the best lightweight
Linux distros for old computers.'
