Hi there,
Dont mean to offend you but I suggest you search this forum as there are several active posts that are discussing the same general topic. Good thing to start with would be ask yourself what would you like to do with a new linux distro?

Tux,

I'm closing this one even though it's 4 minutes
older since the dupe is in the more appropriate
forum for this question.
