ok, my computer in my garage died two years ago. im looking to replace it, i have a few old vista computers that im thinking about putting together. i don't want to spend any money on it. as it will be just be used in the garage for when i need to look something up. i probably have a few more xp pro product keys left, but im thinking about chaining it up. i have herd very good things about linux and was wanting you alls thoughts. i will mainly use it for the internet maybe some music.

what other free operating systems should i look into?

I am a bit of a linux freak...

I used to use Ubuntu on decent systems and Xubuntu on tired ones, but as of late Ubuntu has become bloated and the UI is clunky, so I run Xubuntu on everything. It is simply ubuntu with the XFCE interface, which is lightweight, clean and very very customizable.

Seeing as the OP is very obviously looking for free operating systems, why else would you or anyone else post that? I wasn't referring to you specifically either.

Content:

I used Ubuntu Netbook Remix for a short while before I sold my netbook a while back. Everything worked, but I never bothered to try and use anything besides what came installed on the build. I imagine the desktop version is just as good, installation was pretty simple. If you can build a bootable usb stick or burn a dvd, you should be fine.

I'd stay away from linux unless you're an uber nerd. Although unbuntu is fairly user friendly, as long as you don't like installing apps, and can use what's preinstalled.

Best way to get a free, LEGITIMATE copy of windows, that can update and everything. Join a good [email protected] team, preferably a large one. Actually start folding, and have some decent stats. Then request copies in their forums, you'll usually get offers for free legit, or extremely low priced copies.
