Please Show me a Distro which can install everything useful from a DVD Image


Hello all,
It would be very kind of you all if someone can show me the Full DVD version of a Linux Distro which has all the softwares needed to work out of the box

Want to install as a dual boot with win 7 (at the moment, but plan to complete shift over Linux if possible)

Does Linux now support NTFS (read, write)?
I have a separate partition for DATA (NTFS) and windows reads/write to it and want that Linux also be able to do that.

1) ease of use (I have installed Fedora, Mandriva, Knoppix5, kubuntu, opensuse, Simply Mepis, etc. in the past, sorry dont remember the versions of them but I can install linux)

I only like KDE and no Gnome please

2) Operations out of the box like
Video playing, Disc Burning, Batch File rename, Audio player with keyboard shortcuts(MP3 and Wav)(I use Foobar2000), Open Office 3.2 (.docx, .xlsx, etc.), graphics editing(I use PhotoshopCS5), Desktop Publishing(Indesign CS5), Vector Graphics(Corel x5), web designing(expression4), mp3 tagging (mp3tag) etc.

3) is it possible to offline install with linux like we download once and can install many times like in windows, because Im short on internet connection.

4) what about unicode support in Linux? How to type them? I type them in windows with my custom keyboard made with Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator?

It would be really very kind of you if you can answer these queries..

Thanking you all
Paarkhi

I don't think you'll find matching opinions on what "all the basic softwares needed" means.

Maybe your best choice is remaster a distribution.

Select some good CD installed of Linux (such as Mepis 8.0) and install on one computer and then add all the packages you think you should have using the ordinary package manager and network connection. That ought to add up to less network use than downloading one DVD.

Use the remastering instructions for that distribution to write everything you have out to a DVD that can be used to install the same set of software on multiple computers.

First of all I thank you for the answer, Ok, so I was not knowing that you can re-master your own DVD, but what about the Unicode part of the question?
