- oh, wait. I have an old PC I don't use much (2008 AD - Core 2 Duo). I was thinking about using it just for orgmode. Would you recommend me an OS?

What are the other specs for the machine, as in what's the RAM?

This matters a ton because it means the difference of what desktop environment (DE) or Window Manager (WM) you could use.

I would say for something that old, you might want to consider Debian, a lightweight Ubuntu variant (Lubuntu, Xubuntu, etc), Puppy Linux, or even Arch Linux.

Example: I would like that every time "I see" a heading with a special TODO state, this heading is expanded. Should I keep reading the book to materialize this little idea or should I take different actions?

Buuut, if I take the .tex produced file and I open it with an external latex editor, the document is compiled into a decent PDF. How could orgmode generate a valid tex document but not to be able to produce its PDF?
