I sure could use some advise on Linux. The situation is that on and off in the past I've tried to install some varieties on an unused computer, just to see what it's like. None of them has ever worked (Red Hat, Debian, Open Suse and Damn Small L, I think it was) and the comp is long gone. But dammit! I'll try again. So what flavour and version would be appropriate for a VirtualBox on a Windows host? It should be both small, say 400 MB, and suitable for as wide selection of software as possible. Maybe this isn't the right forum, but I've seen a few ardent advocates of Linux around here, and I would truly appreciate their words of wisdom.
