My HP Pavillion dv4000 is quite possibly my longest commitment; I have the 1.6 ghz chipset, 512 mb RAM, the original 60gb HDD with an additional 160 gb. I hadn't touched this machine in roughly 6 years for anything more than hunting down old files and copying them all over to external. You get the idea, it had become a "wall-hanger."
So, I recently discovered LiLi USB creator and started testing out various Linux builds in VirtualBox. I've always been interested in learning the OS but didn't have much luck in '09 when I played around with a friend's copy of Fedora and I'd basically written it off. That is, until I cleaned out my office and drug out my old college dinosaur.
In short, I said "adios Windows XP" and allowed Bodhi to take over. I could not be more pleased as this decade old machine of mine quite possibly runs better than my newer PCs and laptop. And I am loving Linux so far, even though I'm just beginning to learn it.
Mad props to all the development team. Out of all the distros I tested, Bodhi is the chosen one.
