For the last 3 days I have been playing with Mandrake 2005LE 64bit and I'm not sure this is the best distribution for my use as there are still a few issues with the 64bit support.
I tried running the 32bit edition but there I was unable to get my Wifi card working.
So now I'm left with a dilema.
The good thing about Linux is that you can test out as many distro's a you like to find the one that fits you best, but my Internet provider isn't ok with that (Download limit
So now I need some expert advice on which distro to try next.
I have searched for reviews on people running linux on the same machine as mine but didn't really find any.
These are my specs and what I would like to do.
Acer Ferrari 3200Lmi Notebook
Ati Radeon 9700 Pro
Broadcom 4306 Wireless build in
60GB Internal disk + 250GB External
What I would like to run:
VMWare5 (bought it already)
Cedega 4.3.2 + Point2Play (bought it already)
DVD Editing and Burning (I have NeroLinux through my windows Nero serial)
I was ready to go out and buy Mandrake/Mandriva if I liked it but the problems I had are stopping me, so please people tell me what would suit me best.
Thanks for the help
EDIT: I don't run any windows, only through VMWare, I only need it for Admin purposes in my consultant work.
