Linux Distro... which one?
I'm having a problem with picking out a Linux Distro to use when I finish off school and have more time with my "own" computer instead of fixing everyone else’s and focusing so much on school work. The thing is I normally don't like Linux to a point but I get this like "Linux Urge" or something where I feel like I'm going to cream myself if I don't have it on my machine lol, maybe you didn't need to know that much.
I had RedHat 9 on my computer and it was so problematic with my video card and wouldn't display 1024x768x64, I tried Slackware... PERFECT, absolutely loved it BUT the sound didn't work. Stupid ALSA! It was nice and fast too btw :) I then tried Mandrake and that was probably the best Distro I tried because it was compatible with everything but it wasn't stable at all. In fact most Linux Distro's I tried keep crashing on me. Why do they say that Linux is so stable when in reality it's not? Or is that because I was using KDE which is buggy?
Well, anyways I'm going to get a new hard drive over the summer for my Linux box... that way I can keep all my windows files and what not but which Distro do you recommend? Also bare in mind I'm not really a newbie to Linux, but in a way I am also. So, I don't know... go down in low terms with me to play it safe :)
PS: I do know it's all personal preference but I'm just asking for personal expierence with different Distro's and what not and how you liked it. :) Current Mood: anxious
