Hat tip to HardOCP.
Or one could get the latest SUSE Enterprise Desktop with XGL ...what a WOW...running it right now .
Think I have found what I like!
is that the one that will run all your windows software?
Xandros, and Linspire are Linux varianta that try to get close to Windows File friendliness.....don't know that they claim they can run all windows software, but they do have stuff.
As far as I know Windows Vista has nothing like the XGL 3 D effects that SUSE gives...you do need a video card for the 3D effects...I have a Nvidia 6200 Turbo in a PCIE slot and an AMD X2 3800+. ...
I just want the computer to work.
I'm a newbie for sure. I like to tinker around, so I have loaded the Gentoo build on an older machine and I'm just now getting started. So far, I like what I see.
Have you looked at some of the slackware variants....SLAX has a live CD ...
Windows is fine till you get on the internet then the roles get reversed!
I've been on the internet for 13 years with Windows.
Bump for later reading - thanks Ernest.
