I have an older laptop collecting dust. I'm thinking of putting #Linux on it and using it as a basic machine for general internet, scuttlebutt, mastodon use. Maybe some LibreOffice documents, but just a basic use machine.
I'm not a programmer and have very little experience with Linux.
Which Linux distro should I use? Any apps you recommend for a basic user?
I'm looking forward to playing around with it during the day while I'm upstairs with my toddler. Trying to read everything on my cellphone has not been the most entertaining thing in the world.
This is an official mastodon instance for activists of the global climate justice and social justice movement.
