Best Linux Distro For T43 in 2024!

#1 Post by el_Capo » Wed May 29, 2024 1:08 pm

I was recently able to purchase a Thinkpad T43 with 2GB of ram memory.
Windows XP is going really badly :banghead: :banghead: , that's why I wanted to ask for recommendations on possible Linux distributions for this computer 8)

I am not interested in doing anything particular with said equipment, I only have it as a part of my collection, therefore a general distribution would be fine. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :banana:

Thank you for your answers !

I have LXLE on my similar R51; it was the only distro that worked with wifi out of the box and it runs great.

OpenBSD will run well. You can set it up with IceWM and a few xterms.
