I would have to say opensuse or Ubuntu for a new user. Both are very user friendly

find out

hey, you could just answer these few questions and try out what might fit you. people will argue that it's inaccurate or that it does not work, yet I like it and gives me some perspective in what I want.

I personally use pclinuxos minime 2008 a former deriviative of mandrivia. love it because I can have a custom install.

Although I am using slackware.. I would suggest you mandriva. Mandriva is really good for newcomers and they work properly. Just like slackware ;p but ok slackware is a little bit more advance

Excellent call!

Closed. Should the OP contact me off the boards and
want it re-opened I'm happy to oblige.



Cheers,
Tink
