Thanks for the help folks. Lost connection yesterday due to a storm here. (weak signal to begin with and it goes down virtually every time we get an electrical storm).

Will get back into it today.

If you're new to linux I suggest Ubuntu or Mint...both have similarities and both are relatively easy to use.

I prefer Mint myself...but that's just me.

because imho, i'd suggest ubuntu or mint because they are easy to use.

I prefer Mint because it doesnt have Ubiquity user interface and comes prebundled with flash player and vlc player.

Re: What Linux to download?
for a noob with linux i think Ubuntu will do good job , but the new Unity interface suck , so maybe Kbuntu.


Keep in mind that Ubuntu/Kbuntu come from Debian distro and it very easy to get help.

Personaly i use Arch Linux but i will not recomand it for a new commer.

Try testing inside a VirtualBox , it free!

linux like ubuntu/fedora are in a no man's land, where they aren't that good neither for servers nor desktop usage.

sure you can do but it's not going to be a pleasant experience. if you want stability of linux, go for mac, even diehard linux users use macs for desktop usage.

Re: What Linux to download?
Pclinuxos is my favorite and I've tried many. Its the best. My second favorite is pinguy, a very useable form of ubuntu. Is well worth downloading both, and trying them out live.

But note, my pinguy is 64 bit, pclinux only has 32 bit, so I use 2 hardrives.

The pinguy sound went after a later update, the pclinux keeps going strong after its updates.
