Thanks for the Welcome

Well here you all go....OK now you all have a question..hehehe....Since I'm really new to this and am trying to use it for Music recording. I'm using Calkwalk's Sonar on the "other" OS and a friend gave me the Debian Distro, but i was told that this one is a little more complicated and thought about recommending Suse to get use to the OS & updates. I tried to go into the Term and rename the sources.list but keep coming up with and error stating that a bash error occured..So I logged in as SU and still couldn't get to add the apt-get for my updates....So as you can tell I'm not any kind of programmer...
Well YES I am very pleased with the OS and wanted to let every one know.... no more gates to mess with...woo hoo
The Distro of Demudi is for audio & multimedia production....
Thanks
M

Any good distro should work. Debian has several recording and editing programs for multimedia, So does SuSE. You hardware seems a little lean for a modern distro of linux. I would suggest using debian and compiling a custom kernel to save resources.

Thanks, but what do you mean by lean..??? I'm still very new to all this....Do you think that Suse might be better ? Also someone told me about a distro called " Hi again...See I told everybody I would ask questions...Has anyone ever hear of a Distro called "Mepis " ???? Has anyone heard of this one ??
