Linux supports old hardware and software
I started running Linux in 1995 and if I wanted to I could still use the same PC, and the same programs I did then today. In some cases with some of my favorite programs I do. I've had a couple different PCs in that time but not as many as Windows users usually go through though. One fellow I chat with keeps on telling me he still runs FVWM2 as his desktop Window Manager. I guess he likes it? Even I have to admit I've changed WMs a couple times over the years just for change sake. The bottom line is in order to be successful running Linux you have to take control of your system, and run what you want. Start off with a minimum custom install, then add only what you want. You'll be happier than if you take the raft of trash distros offer with a "Desktop Environment".
