    Which version of Linux should I get? HELP!


    Hey guys, im buying a PC so I can just hook it up to the TV in my room and use it to browse internet and watch HD films (720p/1080p).

    So I decided to buy an Acer Aspire Revo R3610 Desktop PC

    My question is, considering im mainly going to be using the pc for movies/internet, what version of Linux should I get? Ubuntu?

    PS. I dont want anything complicated, something simple to use.

    Ubuntu is an excellent general-use distribution that's relatively easy to pick up. You could certainly do a lot worse.

    It may be worth considering Mythbuntu
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Ubuntu or Mint, both are 'just works' kind.
