Others also mentioned Xubuntu, but my old Mac mini cannot handle all DVD and CD 
formats very well. Fortunately Lubuntu had a 64-bit 14.04 .iso DVD that my Mac 
did accept. Now I have 64-bit PicoLisp running ...

: (cons *CPU (version T))
-> ("x86-64" 16 1 16)

The future is bright. The only thing I have not got, for some reason, is 
Norwegian keyboard layout. It was available during installation, but now I 
cannot find it. I guess I will fix that in a couple of days.

Xubuntu could work too.
And it's possible to switch window systems later, too.

Hi Rick,

Lubuntu looks very promising. I think I have to give it a try. Thanks!

If you like Ubuntu-ish and want to see about 64-bit, maybe try
http://lubuntu.net/ on your 1GB RAM machine.  More fun for the
weekend! :)
