Is it?  I hadn't heard that.  You mean my Firefox on Linux is
vulnerable right now because of outdated Flash?  Am I *forced* to use
Chrome now?

As for distro, the problem is probably just the lack of good 3D support
on old hardware for the stupid modern GNOME3's and Unity.  If it was
me, I'd do a Fedora install but do a minimal install (no X) and add X +
XFCE and the bare minimum I need.  XFCE in 2D mode will run just fine
on that laptop.
