Nice to see you Granny Geek, its been a while.
The issue is this is not for my kid, this is for a neighbors kid. I got a chance to go through a few pallets of trashed computers. Found 3 good ones, brought them home and started refurbishing and testing. parts went to current systems as upgrades and I'm currently left with a few boxes and extra parts. So rather then selling them for a small pay off I figured I'd just give one of them to someone that could use it.
The family has very little cash, so this machine will not be online. I'm just looking for something fun, stable, educational, and net ready. I started with zenwalk on the box, it had video issues and there new version seems more resource hungry and laggy then prior versions. So I remembered my experiences with Vector and seen a light version and thought that was the way to go.
I really like that open disc idea...all the fun of linux in the most problematic os ever conceived.
no2thesame, granny geek I'll see what I can put together.
Also from previous vector/zenwalk experience I know of the issues of using linux package/slacky repos I just remember reading that vector had upped the supported software to 9000+ packages suppose that doesn't account for versions.
Any suggestions for fun games, apps, for a kid 11+ no net required preference given to ones on the repos.
