    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 prefer gentoo the parent distro of sabayon due to the control it provides to me over every aspect of the system.

    The ONLY bummer about Sabayon is the package manager. A bit slow. The OS itself is very elegant.

    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.

    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.
