Which distro to get for emulator project
So i am new to Linux. I have just installed Ubuntu on an old desktop and am pretty able with computers in general, but i have an idea for a project, and would like your opinion. The project is this:
I would like to have my old computer start up with a menu allowing me to choose between X amount of emulators that will allow me to play old games (Dosbox, UAE etc.). I am imagining that for this i will need to write a program that executes each time the computer starts up or something of the like.
Does anyone have ideas on which distro to get, how i should write said program or any other ideas on how to do this, i would very much like to hear from you!
Please remember that I am new to Linux, so if some of this sounds lame just ignore it. If you have any links on what I should read up on before i start, please post URLs.
