My last disto I tried on it was Mint, this is actually my distro of preference. I was able to install the LXDE version. This would have been great because I prefer the networking tools they have in the base system. But, the updates and upgrades after the initial install was hanging up. I am now in the process of installing Debian again. I have had it installed and running well. During the tweaking and setting it up to my personal preferences I either overloaded it with software or de-installed some needed software to boot correctly. The Gnome version was to heavy and required more storage than I had available, the Xfce version would on occasion not install all the components that I liked or lose access to them after the install. I have tried the LXDE through some package changing and found it to be a very fast OS for this computer. So, I'm presently installing it Debian LXDE straight off the net install disc.
