Not xp then kubuntu 8.04 Better use W2K with friefox 4.1?

Cf48 laptop can not do xp. Has to use older os.

But kubuntu need pcmcia wifi installed, otherwise network manager removed.

It's the way older os work.

Firefox 3 beta 5 can not be upgraded or ubuntu 8.04 use other browsers, but it will show websites ok.

This is basically a problem with open source and too many cooks spoil the soup.

Why most people not using Linux.

Old laptops are not as usable as old android tablets or phones. The diffence is browser as operating system.

Big data on website is only mpeg4.

The trouble with linux is that newer ones work only on new computers not backward compatible with older ones.

So move on to tablets or phones with apps, give up on vintage operating systems.

GIVE UP ON UBUNTU THEN GO BACK TO w2k?

Every thing works with Firefox 4.1.

Older computer components are all compatible with last W2k sp4.

RECENT FIREFOX HAS PROBLEMS WITH WIFI PCMCIA belkin unit(Yahoo/google server found problem).

UPGRADE FIREFOX WORKS

firefox 39 uses hundreds of mB on small hdd4gBxP.

Go back to firefox 4.1b11 to save memory on hd.

ebay and paypal accounts (pdf)can not be displayed correctly or open in ipad and android tablets, had to use XP and firefox4.1.

Add pdf apps in ios or android. is needed. Not free pdf file open software for download.

Free PDF viewer should be in browser not Linux office desktop apps.
