*NOOB* Seeking Distro for FAST BOOT Dual Booting HP Touchsmart TX2z
Greetings! I'm trying to set up a dual boot for my tx2. I have to keep Vista (for school programs, they only support Windows), and would like to have a secondary OS the boot into. I had Ubuntu installed on here, but it took just as long as Vista to load.
Here's what I'm looking for:
- FREE (I saw a new program "Presto," but I just can't afford or allow myself to pay for linux...)
- Hardware support (Wifi, Sound, Webcam and Touchscreen[if possible])
- Fast Boot (>10 Seconds)
- Ease of install (Don't tell me the old "ANY Distro can be made to boot fast" - I was "out of the box speed")
- Streamline GUI
- Programs (Really, all I need is a browser [firefox] and an instant messenger [pidgin])
- Plugins (I don't want to have to search for all audio/video codecs and plugins)
I know that I'm asking for everything, but I felt: "If I can't find it on Linux Forums, then it doesn't exist..."
