I am running winblows XP on a P5 with 1 gig ram and 2 PCI express Nvida video cards.
1 - Which version of LINUX is close to pure UNIX ? I am aware
that Solaris is close but is there anything better ?
2 - Is installing linux on an external HD a good idea ( 200 GB )
3 - Are there any special issues with dua booting ?
4 - What about basic desktop apps like word processing, spreadsheets etc ?
