Uses KDE desktop, one CD install works both as a live and Install CD. Be wary it is a bit bloated.
This is what PCLinuxOS is based on it is a BIG distrobution with all you will ever need
This is the distro I use and recommend, Why because it works right out of the box. No need to configure Everything, everything just works. It also comes as a 1 CD install that is a live CD that you can install later if you wish.
This Distro is small fast and effective, the ultimite Workers CD
is A one CD install of Fedora Core
Everything you will ever need on 1 CD. Hardware detection is exelent, as is the feel and look of the distro
you might also want to try out Fedora Core, loads of programming tools:
oh also before I forget I have recently accuired a KVM switch that allows you to run two machines with one Monotor and keyboard, if you don't want to dual boot that would be the way to go
Hope this Helps,
