You'll find most people using the latest version of Ubuntu, Fedora or CentOS. They're popular and have the later/latest kernels and libraries that support the aftermarket tools like "Barry" and whatnot.

I'm actually in the process of resurrecting my old PC.. I'm planning on dual booting it with Windows XP/Fedora 10..

It's old 1.2 GHz AMD, 80 GB HDD Prob gonna split it into 2 40GB Partitions), 512 RAM.

I'm hoping to have it up running by the end of the weekend.

I was old Linux user, had an even older machine running a ancient version of Red Hat way back when, We'll see if Linux is "just like a riding a bike".
