    Microtel systems

    What are everyone's opinions on Microtel as a cheap computer used only for typing, and email, and websurfing?
    The only good thing about freezing beyond feeling in the final Nordic ski race was that I couldn't feel that tumble I did going about 30 mph, maybe more.
    On the other hand, not feeling any part of my body for 30 minutes was scary, especialy for my manhood.

    Windoze: XP, hate it, though its more stable than my old 98SE
    Dream: linux, mandrake, then slackware.

    I would advise going pure Linux or dual-booting with windows. Lindows type things are terrible. Of course, some n00bs like them . You can install a good Linux barebones from two floppies, if your computer is really bad. That includes Lynx and a few other programs. If it isn't too bad, you could put a 50MB distro on (includes Linux, a few programs, and X windows system). If good enough though, put a full distro like RedHat or Slackware. Trust me, Mandrake is not the way to go. It is supposed to be the most user-friendly distro, but I find RedHat easier (and more powerful)

    I do not have permission to put linux on any of mt familie's computers and was simply wondering if a microtel system would be good enough to put red hat, mandrake, etc. on. Or, do you mean the comps are built only for lindows?
