Would like to get rid of a Mint distribution installed as part of a multi-boot system. I cannot tell which partition is the Mint I want to keep and which is the one I would like to replace.

What does it mean 'x', instead of it put the name of the base distro, to be based on 'x1', instead of it put the name of the based distro. For example Ubuntu and Debian or Ubuntu and Mint.

I have a 10 year old Fujitsu Amilo (Li 1818) laptop with a 17" screen. It runs Windows Vista, which I know is due to end in April 2017. It has an Intel (R) Core (TM)2 processor. This is a T5300 @ 1.73GHz. It has 2GB of RAM and is a 64 bit O/S.
Enter a short description. I want to keep the laptop as it's in good working order, albeit slow with Vista. What is the best distro for basic use, like web browsing, emails, music and WORD, EXCEL? Any suggestions? Thanks.
