Which Linux Distros is best for intel core 2 duo processor ram 2 gb

I will be installing linux in my system which is very old system and i will use it for casual work and basic programming . Configuration:

processor Intel core 2 duo E7400 2.80 GH;
Ram 2 GB ; Disk 500 GB;

I am already using ubuntu disco 19 in my laptop .So i want to try something new , lite and faster os . I will remove windows completely and install linux. Suggest OS that work fast in this conguration and do not freeze up.

Do give some best suggestion of any linux distros apart from ubuntu 19

Is the processor fan not working?

coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Package id 0: +56.0°C (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 0: +56.0°C (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +52.0°C (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

dell_smm-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device

Processor Fan: 0 RPM

CPU: +55.0°C

Other: +47.0°C
Other: +44.0°C
GPU: +52.0°C

How do I control the speed of the fan processor?

For a processor running at 50 MIPS, what is the average execution time per instruction?

I have a practice test question. I am given only the MIPS with 4 choices of the average execution time.

How is this calculated? Don’t I need other data? I know that MIPS = (number of instructions / execution time) / 1 million.

For a processor running at 50 MIPS, what is the average execution time per instruction?

a) 20ns
b) 50ns
c) 2μs
d) 5μs

Payment Processor for the affilaite network site.

I am looking for some payment processing company for my upcoming affiliate network site .I want to provide my merchants the payment processor and the order page personalized with my company logo.Please suggest and recommend me any network like this if you know any.Also tell me about the payment processing companies which have no setup fee and only deduct money on per transaction.

If the Intel Pentium processors, was not made compatible to programs written for its predecessor, it could have been designed to be a faster processor

I find this question while solving some government job question bank. If someone could provide the answer along with a little explanation it would be very helpful.

Ques:- If the Intel Pentium processors, was not made compatible to programs written for its predecessor, it could have been designed to be a faster processor.

  1. The statement is true
  2. The statement is false
  3. The speed cannot be predicted
  4. Speed has nothing to do with the compatibility

(I did not find any tag as microprocessor or something so i have to keep it under the tag computer architecture, sorry for that, but i did not have sufficient reputation to create a tag.)

Can int16_t be easier on the processor then int?

Ok to be clear I know that the compiler and archature of a processor also have a role to play in this. But this is more of a can it rather then a does it question.

I have already tried to research in to this but all i could find out is that int16_t and int8_t are used for the times where u need a precise size in the length of the data.

But what I want to know is can a int16_t put less strain on say a 80Mhz micro processor and increase proformance then an int or is it most likely just going to preform the same?
