Hi ston3Wall,

Linux today comes in several different flavors or distros as they are known in Linux circles.
Some Linux distributions are light-weight (they’ll run just fine on your old laptop), some are targeted at people who just want to try out Linux without replacing their main OS while other desktop distros (say Ubuntu) include a more comprehensive collection of software applications and also support a wide variety of hardware devices.

Choose the Right Linux Distro for your Desktop

I hope the link is somewhat useful to you. I am not currently a Linux user, so unfortunately cannot provide first hand personal experience.

And:
