Well, you can install pretty much any version of Linux on that PC and it will run fine. You don't say, but I'll assume that's a 64 bit processor, so you should install the "X86-64" version. (Most 64 bit PCs ship with 32 bit Windows, which makes about as much sense as selling a V-8 engine with half the spark plugs pulled out.)

There are countless Linux distributions, but for the new user "Linux Mint" is probably the best choice.

More information at the link below.

I've been running a 1.68 GHz Core 2 Duo with 2 GB of memory for many years now, and it is plenty fast for everything but the FlightGear flight simulator that's available for Linux. Currently running Fedora 18.

Hello MarkB_MI,

Mine is a 64 bit. I do have a version of Linux on a DVD, I'd been darn it won't open.
I went to the file and hit saved and open option
nothing happened, except a brief flash. I guess I'll call my puter guru, and let him put it in for me. Supposed to be able to run it for the disk, have not been able to do that either. I know that it can be installed as a dual boot also. Its Linusmint 14.1 version. I just picked one to download, maybe I picked the wrong download?. Unless its not a full operating system file.
