Which Operating System?
I have a rather old, slow laptop that I would like to put Linux on. Out of the operating systems that I've used, my favorite is Ubuntu. Now that I'm looking for one to put on the laptop, I'm not sure whether I should get Ubuntu, Kubuntu, or Xubuntu. I will mainly be using the laptop for word processing and some web surfing.
