Best linux for a game?

#1
I'm staying at my parent's house for a week and got an old pc there. For some reason windows xp is not getting installed. I want to play a game on it but windows 10 isn't able to handle even light web browsing! I don't know much about linux so please help me choose one that requires low specs but support flash and can handle the game. I don't mind the fps if it's >20




The specs are:
AMD Sempron 3800+ 2.20 Ghz Single core processor
2 GB DDR2 RAM 800 Mhz
128 MB Nvidia Geforce 6150 graphics card 425 Mhz clock speed

Ubuntu 10 is about the best game rig for a windows xp vintage
The current system lives here The leading OS for PC, tablet, phone and cloud | Ubuntu and still a free download but I'd recommend shopping around for a cheap usb or disc
ebay 4 eg, UBUNTU Linux OS 4GB USB Flash Drive 32 or 64 Bit Forget Windows 10, 8, 7 or XP


p.s. the guys at gog.com have some Linux games.

Ubuntu is the parent and Mint mate is the child… made by the same focks for people that want a Windows type experience;

  • Mint will probably install on that laptop but it's designed for newer ones and will struggle with that old graphics card
  • You asked for a games system and the fact is Ubuntu is better for that simply because it's been around a lot longer and has more people using it/ figguring out how to get Windows programs working
but go ahead and try both of them (free) and fyi many of the ebay type shops will sell you a multi-disc/ usb with more than one type of Linux on it.

Ubuntu has more people using it and is better for games.
Mint-mate is a newer system (made by the people that made Ubuntu) and would not be as easy to get Windows games for.
