After testing several distros in an old PC I assembled in 2001 (15 years ago!), with different results, I was not completely satisfied.
I installed LXLE 16.04.1 and result is EXCELLENT: Web navigation, videos / sound playing, Office applications go smoothly, and even streaming video from youtube plays fine. Last but not least, distribution look and feel is very beautiful and pleasant to use.
I recovered this abandoned PC and now I will use it occasionally in my mother's home.
These are the PC specifications:
MS-6330 LE Motherboard / AMD Athlon 1133 Mhz CPU (32 bits / PAE) / 1280 MB RAM / 40 GB HD / Riva TNT2 PCI VGA Card / Realtek 8139 10/100 Eth Card
Congratulations to LXLE team. You have done a great work!
Well done !! Installed easily on Pent 4 with 2G Ram, after failed attempts with Mint and ReactOS. Elegant, smooth, full featured. Thanks. ~Chris
