    I have try to install Opensuse or Fedora on a old IBM Intellistation Pro Z 3.06 gz with 4 GB ram, and they seem buggy. The cursor will jerk around, but in Windows it works fine, any suggestions?

    Suggestions for Linux on your Mac, Vmware or a PC?

    If its for that old PC you mention, I suspect you'll be hard pressed to find anything that will work given the age

    I have Windows 2008 Server installed, runs fine, but new distros of Linux are buggy, some will not load..Opensuse and Fedora will load, but are buggy, yes I am trying a dual boot system. Something just to play with..

    I found a nice Linux distro, "Manjaro", works great!
