    Question Option Linux Distribution

    Hello!

    I know this is not the place to ask about other Linux distributions, it is impolite to talk about something that has nothing to do with being in a Knoppix Knoppix official website, but I need your help and I have no good time to search on my own.

    I need a Linux distribution that is easy to use (without the need for manual), is not required to write commands to start Live CD or USB-Live to choose the desktop environment or language as Knoppix 6.7.

    We also have the following:

    CD / DVD
    Multimedia Player
    Bluetooth support
    Office suites: Text, and presentations
    Graphical: XFCE, Flux or similar low income.
    Pidgin
    The Gimp
    Web browser other than firefox
    Have a Dock as user friendly rocketdock

    I have friends who need an operating system but they are not computer or want to learn Linux commands to do simple things that can be done with the mouse or trackball.

    They want to buy a new PC, but what they do not require much power.

    I have fellow students who have no access to internet and computers are very old.

    But need a lightweight office suite, but there is no competition for OpenOffice and all Linux variants are practically the same thing but with other names like Free Office ..

    I just need a Linux Distro that is not at all necessary to use console to configure anything. Click everything to be with me unless I ask you how I installed Windows has passed 80% of the time.

    I've tried: Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Fluxubuntu (very outdated) Puppy Linux, VectorLinux, Zenwalk, Pappermint Linux, Xpud linux, Linux mint semi old versions, but none gives the point that my colleagues and friends need.

    PCs that have are generally:

    750 MHz Processor
    RAM: 300 MB
    Hard Drive 6 GB
    Intel i810 Graphics Card series
    and manage resolutions: 1152x864

    can you help? is that the onset of Knoppix 6.7 scares my colleagues write commands are frightened because they are not interested in learning something you do not study. and do not blame them, have a complicated life to complicate.

    and a distribution to me: 850 MHz, 386 MB RAM ...
    Ubuntu installation that is style, style Next, next, next.

    Ubuntu, Windows, Apple all try to do these things.

    None of these make it easy to work with your computer except through some graphical interface.
    That is an enormous restriction which many Linux users do not like.

    Knoppix has an additional advantage over most other Linuxes in being inherently able to work with almost any set of computer hardware.
