Man, do I love Linux! I installed my first distro (VectorLinux 5.8 Std Gold) on a backup PC about 1 1/2 weeks ago, and I am totally hooked! I've since decided to setup dual boot on my main PC (wanna hang onto XP for a bit longer), and I've narrowed my decision as to what distro to put on THIS machine down to 2 candidates... Mandriva 2008 or openSUSE 10.3. I helped a friend install openSUSE last night on his PC, and so far he's pretty impressed with the GUI. He hasn't had much of a chance to check out some of the other aspects of the distro, and unfortunately the CD I have is NOT a Live CD.
Right now I am running off the Mandriva Live CD, and I am LUVING IT!!! I am seriously considering using this distro, but I had a very important question... How well does openSUSE access Windoze files? Mandriva had NO PROBLEM whatsoever playing my music and viewing pics that are on my HD (all in XP). I REALLY wish I could find an openSUSE Live CD that I could play with and give it a taste-test. Anyone know of a download link for one?
