i'm new and need help =]
i've had my asus eee pc for like over a year now but i still haven't really got to grips with it. I'm still VERY confused about things like, Debian, Ubuntu, Mandriva etc... i don't understand what that is all about and how can i tell which one i'm on?
There are also more things i'd like to know and understand but i'll start on that one atm =]
