Dell XPS 400 HTPC - Want to use linux...


Hello everyone, I am needing to know if I can run Linux on my Dell XPS 400. I am currently using this system as an HTPC and want to move to a faster OS, because I am getting some stuttering in my videos. If there is already a thread out there for this please direct me there.

Thanks!

What I would suggest is to download an ISO and try a distro such as Mint(9) and give it a go "live" to see if your equipment will work , I've had pretty good luck with mint 9 Isadora, 10 Julia, and KDE, but not so good with other distros.

Please post the specifications for that machine (CPU, RAM, VGA), so that we can recommend an appropriate distribution.
