Jeff Hoogland put together a custom Bodhi for the C720. It's pretty much perfect.

Finally had someone talk me into trying Windows 8 earlier today so I gave in and installed it.I still don't like it but a start menu replacement app makes it at least tolerable.
This old box now has Windows 8 Pro,Windows 7 Ultimate,LXLE, MX-14, Point Linux, PCLOS Gnome 2 and Sparkylinux as well as Slacko,FatDog,Lighthouse and other Puppy frugal installs.
I have to scroll through the Grub menu........ Laughing


Update..... Windows 8 had to go.No rant but I can't stand using it........ more room for Linux. Smile
Thank goodness for Dban.

EDIT:
Reclaimed Windows 8 hdd space with 4 ext4 partitions.

I'm back using the latest stable version of Anti X (13.2); it's a godsend for older computers such as mine. Looking forward to trying the latest alpha release (14.1) soon.

@Colonel Panic...
I've tried Antix 13.2,..and really do like it (a LOT!). But I wanted to use some Debian DVDs as an added repository,...and sadly Antix 13.2 said they couldn't be mounted. Neither could MX14 mount Debian DVDs. Guess that's 'cause both of those are on CDs only,..and don't recognize DVDs. <sigh>

I was hoping to add some of the Debian apps to Antix (instead of having to do a lot of downloading, which is a PITA with dialup) Laughing

CrunchBang is only on a CD, though,...and it easily mounted the Debian DVDs,...and let me add some apps from them. Hmmmm.

Hi again nitehawk,

That's strange, I haven't heard of that problem before. Have you tried mentioning it on the AntiX forum and seeing what they say about it?

Well,...actually I haven't asked about it. I just uninstalled it,...and just put old stable Debian in its place. It's good to just run good old plain vanilla Debian ..dual-booted with Puppies of some kind. Always have a Puppy on the hard drives. (Using Debian right now)....

Actually,...on this old P4,..I believe that Slackware will run much better than a Debian install. I really do like Slackware, too,..and it does run a lot quicker and better than Deb does on this rig.

Update: Just decided to go back to Slackware. What is it that they say? "Once you Slack, you can never go back". Yeah,..guess that may be true after all.

I haven't tried the newest Vector,....but I've been using Vector 7.0 for quite some time. Actually,..Vector has always been my "go to" distro since Vector 5.9 (can't remember when that was,..I think about 2006 or 2007).

So I really use Vector the most, but sometimes I use just plain Slackware. I'm very fond of Vector for sure. Great "little" distro. And I will most likely be using it when the newest version officially comes out. I know a lot of people say that it's not as close to Slackware as Salix is,...but there are a LOT of things that Vector does to make Slackware a bit more "friendly" and easier to use. And it's super-good looking, too!

Used part of the free space from getting rid of 8 and installed Kubuntu 14.04. Didn't want to cooperate with my Nvidia graphics but it finally surrendered.

Won't have this installed that long but it's a 5 year LTS release.

http://www.kubuntu.org/

Code:
james@ubunturwiii:~$ uname -a
Linux ubunturwiii 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Yes Nitehawk it certainly does make Slack more friendly and looks great as you say I have used 7 on several occasions it is very stable.

That looks good Smile LXDE and razor-qt getting together sounds like a very good idea to me.
