New member seeking advice!
I'd like to start off by saying hello to all I'm a brand spanking new member to the community, very excited to be here (obviously seeing as joining is optional). I've been using linux for about 6 years or so and love it! I try to convert anyone and everyone given the opportunity. I am a bit of a hoarder as I eagerly take in others "old" computers with intentions of putting them to use for something in my home network :)
Today I come to you seeking advice, I've long used Ubuntu w/ Gnome it's my staple OS so to speak. I've tinkered with other distros like slacker, openSUSE, fedora etc... I just don't think I know anywhere enough yet and I'm hoping you will be able to enlighten me. Particularly I'm looking for the "ideal" OS and desktop environment to use on a PC I recently built for cheap. It is going to be a media server mostly but I will likely store more than that on it occasionally. So here are the specs of the machine. Let me know if you want anymore information.
Memory: 3 gigs SDRAM
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 at 2.20GHz x 2
Graphics GeForce 7050/nforce 610i/integrated/SSE2
I look forward to reading your opinions and suggestions. Thank you in advance!
