Which distribution of linux would fit best on a celeron 2.3ghz and 1gb ram?

I have a ciber coffee and I just tried linux for the very first time in my life, for my clients I got Intel core 2duo pcs, and I installed Zorin OS 6 on them, it was perfect!!! I've been a windows user for several years and I got really surprised when I saw linux in action!!! It's awesome... ok the point is... My pc (the one I use for attending my little business) isn't as good, it's a celeron 2.3 ghz cpu and 1gb ram m. Which linux distribution would fit best on it? (Zorin was slow starting cause integrated graphic card is only 64 mb) Help! I want to use linux, too.

Most distros should work for you. The limiting factor is the desktop environment. Full-featured DEs such as KDE and Gnome (I believe Zorin is Gnome-based) will struggle on your machine, so I would recommed a distro that comes with something like Xfce, LXDE or Fluxbox. My personal preference would be Linux Mint Xfce Edition, as it's a well integrated system that works flawlessly with no tinkering required. If you enjoy tinkering, I'd say Arch is the way to go, as it lets you set everything up exactly as you like it, but many people find it a bit scary. ;)

then u may try for SuSE Linux Desktop(latest ver), I also have the same and working fine for me, Though u can also try Fedora / Ubuntu.
