Re: Best distro for an IBM ThinkPad t60 (laptop)

said by robman50:

I would think the T40 is an older slower model from the T60. Thanks, I'll give SUSE a try.

I was running XFCE as my desktop, but KDE was running ok as well, but took more memory.

They recommend 2GB of RAM for 12.1.

The recommendation from the web page you cited states "Main memory: 512 MB physical RAM (2 GB recommended)"

I've run openSUSE 12.1 in a VM, with 768 MB of RAM and it ran fine.
