    Unhappy Need help picking a distro


    Hey everyone. I'm having trouble picking a Linux distribution to best meet my needs and I thought I would ask the community for help. Here is what I need.

    - I need my wireless to work (Broadcom card FYI)
    - I need iPod/iTunes support
    - I need something to run Windows applications (namely WoW, possibly others)
    - I'll need my sound to work

    I will be installing Linux on my laptop which is a Compaq Presario V2424NR. If anyone needs the specs on my laptop let me know. Thanks everyone!

    welcome to the forums, snoguy986

    take a few minutes to read through the links in my signature, pick your distro, then start a new thread if you should run into any problems with it.

    have fun with linux!

    Welcome aboard!

    Definetly take a look at the distro link in my sig. Just note though that if one distro can do it, it is 99% likely that you can do it in another.
