Dont know what to do ?? :(:(


Hi all i want to install linux on my other computer. And i want a distro that is damn good looking and fast. I have used slackware but i didnt think it looked so good (but it was fast and always working). Then i tryed mandrake and now im never going to try that again. So i tried with Suse and it was god looking but i think it was a bit slow and it did absolutlely not work correctly so now im wonder how i should do if i want a fast distro and how to make it looking good i have seen on google.com that it is a lot of guys that have damn good looking linux:s

the screenshots you see on this forun are from people who have spent alot of time and effort customizing their Linux installs.............you can't just install/boot and have linux like everyone else..........you need to edit scripts, install icons, install window managers, and set it up how YOU like it................

This is eternal question. Which woman I choose? Beautiful or intelligent? Depends what you want from system, depends what box's specs are. You CAN make your KDE or Gnome to look the way you want them to be. And still Slackware takes the fastest rank

And if the beauty is what you seek then tell me that this distro is not beautiful enough:

i personally like the look of kde

go to kde-look.org and download a good iconset and wallpaper
then add them in kde control center ( its easy )

there are alot of other things that you could do but thats mainly the basics

checkout what others have done here : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ght=screenshot

Go with the intelligent, because with a little encouragement from you, she'll learn how to show how stunningly beautiful she already is. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go take a shower to wash off this perceived male chauvinism.
