Hi,

If you can't use either of those, you are probably not ready for Linux ... stay with Windows.

This question is asked 10 times a day, and it gets boring. If there was a 'best' distro, we'd all be using it.

I am sorry but I count your reply as rude. If you are too bugged replying to such question then why don't you just not reply at all. I asked because I am tired of finding the drivers and tired of checking for errors.

Believe me Sir, I pity your condition to reply to such posts all the time but you cannot talk to someone like that who is new to linux and wants to learn it. I am sorry if I sounded ticked but I am ticked as no one has ever talked to me in this forum like this and this is the first time. If you do not let newbies like me learn something, no one is going to do linux.

Thanks and sorry if you felt bad
AJ

The point is that any current distro will work on that hardware. You don't need any advice. If you have problems, ask for solutions to those problems here, not which distro will be 'easy.'
