I have Intel Celeron 1.1GHz and 4GB ram currently with w10 installed but I'm looking for a a linux distribution that is lighter and won't force updates into my poor machine.
It will mainly be used to browser online, write text on LaTeX, read pdf and code on C (I'm not a programmer but sometimes I write a simple code and need to compile/test it) outside of that the most I would ask for is to emulate game boy (but it's almost irrelevant). Moreover I would really appreciate if it was stable and friendly to install. I've read some posts here and LUbuntu or XUbuntu seems to be a great option, but I've never used any and I dont know if any Tex distribution is compatible so I'm better off asking for help. Many thanks.
