My wife uses a vintage Dell 6000.
XP, 80 G hard drive, 2 G RAM, i686 CPU.
The OS goes down once a year and I reinstall everything.
What Peppermint would work in this unit.  Seven?
I'm currently running Seven over a Win 10, and am very happy with that.

On my Dell laptops, I'm currently running PM7, PM9, and PM10.

They're all working great!   ;)

I have Seven on a multiboot.  I just loaded it to test it and got the dread -
“This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU”
Damn.
This unit was dual booted with Peppermint Six several years ago, but was not reinstalled.
.
.
OK, I bet I downed the 64 bit for my Win 10 unit and kept it on the multiboot.
Downing the version for 32 bit now.

Hi Piraya, I'll bet you're right.
What was I thinking?
