I was sitting here thinking that my old computer that my husband only uses once a day, and has Windows 7 64 bit with 6GB of ram may be a good idea to use as a guinea pig instead of my computer.
Besides the main hard drive in that computer I have a removable hard drive rack that I can put another hard drive in, and probably boot from that if I install Linux on it.
That computer was built in 2007 though so I don't know if the newest version of Linux will run on it, but I'm going to give it a shot as soon as I can.
Thanks again for your help. Will let you know how I make out.
I'm about to build a Linux-based "free" music creation worksatation for my daughter with a 10 year old Q6600@2.4Ghz and 2GB DDR2 and I expect a current distro to run OK (although I'll want to throw more RAM at it). Kodibuntu (based on a Ubuntu version that is a couple of years old) ran just fine on it.
