Hello, As of now I'm trying to reformat a friend's laptop. It's an old one. Sony VAIO, with a 512 MB of RAM, Intel Pentium 4 3 Ghz with an 80 GB of hard drive. ATI video card I think. The user is just someone who access Facebook, Yahoo! Messenger and a bit of Skype. Most of the time, the user plays a game called Slot Machine from Slot Plus Casino. It's a free game that simulates a Slot Machine game with virtual betting stuff. Now, I hate Ubuntu because of the Unity thing. I did some research. Linux Mint and OpenSUSE. Apparently, I'm confused. Linux Mint has KDE and GNOME as well as OpenSUSE. Which of the two (Linux Mint vs. OpenSUSE) will I install and will I use KDE or GNOME? What's the default Desktop Environment that comes with Linux Mint and OpenSUSE? Which is better KDE or GNOME? The user is really used to Windows XP. I can't use Windows 7 because the DVD drive isn't working properly. It can't read DVDs but CDs are okay. I also can't install Windows 7 via Network Installation. I don't know how to do a Network Installation of Windows 7. I only have 2 laptops (mine) with Windows 7 installed. Anyway I'm waiting for everyone's reply. As of now, I'm burning Windows XP into a CD-R.
