I want to try Mandriva Linux
This will be my first time operating on linux so I have a few questions.
A. Is it a good distribution to start on and is it user friendly and fairly easy to get used to?
B. What programs do I have to use do things like CA security suite plus work on Mandriva Linux? Same question for Word and Power Point and so on?
C. Will it be any different downloading torrents and using bittorrent?
D. can you open .rar files in linux and use programs like VSO Convertx to DVD and WinRar and Daemontools?
E. Can you mount an image to DVD?
Any help would be much appreciated thanks couldn't find answers to these questions anywhere else so I figured I needed to seek the experts.
