The best diagnostic live or installed OS that runs on older computers and can be the OS with all the basic needs met such as browsers, word processors. Have used it for years now and love it.

I've been using earlier versions of Knoppix for troubleshooting and rescuing Linux machines, but for some reason, this version doesn't work properly with ThinkPad T400 disk. The fdisk knows the drive, but dd can't find it. The drive is OK, I think, because I'm writing this on the very machine (running Mint 17.3 from that very HD).

This was the first GNU/Linux distro I tried ~ via a live CD c. 2007.

Excellent distro that's packed with handy tools.

Very fast even with the nice compiz effects (bar the wobbly windows).

Probably more suited to run from a USB rather than install on a HDD/SSD.
