Best distro on my old (!) 32 bits machine with Athlon XP processor of year 2000

1. Reactive, thanks to Xfce;
2. Everything I need works, including bluetooth, scanner, printer.

Note for electronic designers:
Version 14.1 is better for designing printed circuits with kicad (on 14.2: kicad is slow), but
this is due to the different versions of kicad offered by sourcery.

I recommand strongly.

Over the last 15+ years of using LInux and 30+ years using DOS and Windows I keep coming back to Salix, Basically it stopped the distro hopping for the last can't remember years.
Software is there either through the repositories, sourcery, or slackbuilds (once you do one, piece of cake).
The guys at the forum are excellent and friendly.
I do try a few others distro's now and again in VirtualBox but nothing has made an impression to change and gets rarely used.
The one window 10 machine (long story) more than likely has Salix running in VirtualBox and use it there unless I need to run some Windows only software that doesn't run in Wine.
If you like long term stability, and a keep it simple approach try it. Easier than Slackware but with the same stability. If you like KDE then try Slackel; prefer XFCE myself.
