Smile Advice wanted for linux skins that are good for starting out with linux


I would appreciate advice from everyone who has a favorite development package ( Red Hat, Suse, Ubuntu, etc. ) that they would like to recommend.
I have not yet tried linux. My use will be at home on a single-core computer that now runs windows xp. I would like something that is not very expensive for general home use. Thank you.

a skin? What does that mean? Do you mean like... an XP theme that looks like Linux or something? Use linux becuase it's what it is. Don't try to pretend it's something else.

I'm kinda partial to my own skin I was born with. As Far as Desktop Enviornments and Window Managers go. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...creenshots-94/

That might help you decide maybe.
