Now the question is, which distribution should we suggest? Which desktop

Thunderbird is the closest to Outlook Express and the Linux version is
quite stable as I have been using it for many years. Avoid the doze
version as it keeps forgetting profiles even after so many years and
versions. As distros, Ubuntu and Kubuntu have 'live + install' CDs that
can be popped into the current machines to check out compatibility and
speed of operation. If not the latest ones, try one version earlier. For
older machines use Debian 5 (Lenny).
