We have a number of questions on SuperUser, asking which Linux distribution to use on the poster's old PC, and giving specs of said old PC.
A number of these questions have been closed as Duplicate. Which seems reasonable except that the correct answer for a PII/128Mb machine isn't the best answer for a 1GHz P4/1Gb machine.
As quack quixote notes, we can't leave them separate, or it would be appropriate to close them as too localized.
Is there some better way we could handle these questions?
Perhaps we need to come up with a good general question, and then redirect all the existing questions to that one?
- What's the quickest distro to get up and running with?
- Good Linux Distributions for Newbies
- How to build or find smallest linux with only LAMP
