I have an old Compaq 5000 series pc with Windows XP on it. It has an 80gb hard drive, dvd, cd r+w, 500 mb ram shared with the video card, and if I remember right an AMD cpu running somewhere about 1.2 to 1.5 ghz. I have not even turned it on in years. What would be an os I can use to replace xp that would be similar to what the Raspberry Pi default os will be once it gets here, and where would I find it?
I'm thinking of using this system after adding another HD I have laying around as a server for the RP for backups, cd & dvd drives, and just figuring out how to communicate between them.
