Ok here is the background: I work for a computer business that purchases old systems from business that have no use for them anymore. Most are old Dell C-Series Laptops, in order to resell these at a cheap price we keep the existing COA OS, which in this case is Windows 2000. Recently we started playing with the idea of putting Ubuntu on these laptops, since they really don't have the power to run anything besides 2k or Linux. So I ask you guys for a list of alternatives to the Windows based program. So far we have come up with this IE - Alt Firefox MS Office - Open Office E-Mail - Thunderbird IM Client - ?? PDF - ?? Media Player - Does VLC have a linux build or is one built in? Good getting started/support sites.
