    Tried it on one of my laptops; but had problems with some peripherals. Ended up loading Mint instead. My daughter uses that laptop now, and hasn't mentioned any problems.

    I tried mint, but couldn't get a clean startup.

    I use a dell latitude D600 so that probably is the reason.

    If you don't mind tinkering and getting a solid, streamlined GNU OS. OpenSuse has always been my go to.

    Xubuntu is what I like. I don't play with it anymore, but it was pretty snappy.
    The XFCE desktop environment was pretty easy.

    Puppy Linux is even quicker.

    DSL (or D-mn Small Linux) is less than 50M, can fit in a flash pen. It has Mozilla Firefox on it with Flash player plug in. Probably the quickest bootable environment there is.
