My school has some old computers around (256MB RAM, 1Ghz Thunderbird etc) and thought it would be a good idea to give them to the kids that don't have computers at home. However, due to licensing (even though we have a lot of old win 2000 and office 2000 licenses) we can't use our software. So they had the bright idea of using linux (and open office) instead
The kids that will be using these will not be technically inclined so the distro needs to be as noob friendly as possible (and maybe look like windows?).
I'm probably going to be tasked with the initial setup so that can be as console linux-y as you want, but beyond that, it has to be simple to use.
I'm open to trying out a couple of different ones if there are lots of suggestions.
