My favourite is ubuntu but I will try Gentoo one day.
ubuntu 10.10..awesome..dual boot with windows 7
u must try it....it is AWESOME!!! and very2 fast
I like OpenSUSE 11.3 the most; although, Ubuntu 10.10 is a great release and excellent if you want a nice stable system that is easy to use. Very easy to use. As far as servers go, I prefer CentOS 5.
I tried Ubunto 10.10 and it don't recognized my video card its stil 800/600 .now I want to try redhat linux !
iam downloading it now...
And Red Hat has no mp3 codec in the system !
Then i try fedura its the same problem (no mp3 decoder in the system)
I search the internet for the mp3 decoder and it say's you have to compile it yourself !
Someone have a solution for me or compiled program with mp3 codec ?
Thanks in advance..
CentOS, goog for both Working and Relaxing ^^
I used Ubuntu from Edgy Eft to Intrepid Ibex but no more..
Sabayon linux 5.4 Gnome x64 as a main OS and Win 7 as a backup system and for sopcast..
can i ask you what makes you prefer sabayon than ubuntu? i always want to try sabayon
I prefer gentoo the parent distro of sabayon due to the control it provides to me over every aspect of the system.
funny,,this whole time i thought sabayon was based on ubuntu! shamae on me
The ONLY bummer about Sabayon is the package manager. A bit slow. The OS itself is very elegant.
Which one do you mean portage or entropy?
It has two package managers
Linux Mint 10 for me
I would appreciate if someone can help me or guide me to find help as I am having problem of setting up Windows 7 dual boot with Ubuntu 10.10 in a 32bit machine. My laptop is Acer Aspire 9410 OEM Vista Home Premium. Installing Windows 7 was not a problem and every thread that I read recommend install Windows 7 first. For some strange reason, when I install Ubuntu, the DVD drive seems to have problem of reading and converting program files into readable screen. At the end of DVD installation, the mouse cursor is not pointing arrow shape but a fuzzy square. I can see Ubuntu Windows dialog frame but not the contents. I was encouraged by successfully dual boot with a much older laptop Dell Inspiron 600m without problem at all. Acer is a much newer laptop and I face problem of installing Ubuntu. I am puzzled.
I thought maybe the DVD disk is defective but I can install into another desktop at home without problem. Any help or guidance to solve my unique problem would be highly appreciated. I like Ubuntu since Ubuntu version 9 but like it more in the latest 10.10. Gentoo was highly recommended that I was discouraged by Gentoo forums saying that if you are a poninty clicky Windows guys, Gentoo is not for you. I took it that Gentoo is for knowledgeable Linux user and not Linux beginner. That also means Gentoo or Sabayon though give you more control but you have to have fair amount of Linux programming command line knowledge. I don't have that and Ubuntu is close enough to Windows ponty clicky as I managed to set up network printing using Ubuntu network printing set up tool guide.
What if u install Ubuntu from a bootable pendrive? have u try it yet?
I did. The same outcome. I have a strange, abnormal computer. It's a gift from my wife, otherwise I would have donate it to Goodwill or Salvation Army. I don't want my wife to feel bad.
Ubuntu because it is awesome and free
