I need an alternative OS. I have an old Acer Aspire One AOA 150-1742 (NetBook) that has XP Home. I bought 2nd hand 6 years ago for my oldest daughter who was using in all the way through High School and her first year of College (she has a brand new Asus laptop now and 2nd year of college). This netbook is still in perfect working order....still fires up and runs great, it's just slow. I've thought about replacing the HDD with an SSD and maxing out the ram (if I can still find some for it) but I just cant justify sinking any money into it. So I thinking some sort of Linux Distro for it. That said, does anybody have any suggestion on what flavor. And, I'm not sure if I want to completely wipe the existing OS (sentimentally attached) and go with a Linux flavor or dual boot it. Any suggestions and ideas on any of it would be greatly appreciated.
