    Finding a Linux dist for me.


    Requirements:
    -Fast and stable.
    -LFS like

    Applications:

    -Torrent
    -Instant messaging
    -IPRoute
    -Kmail
    -C++, Java, flash IDE and compilers.
    -Internet browsing without flash, java, otherfancylanguages problems.
    -Sci calculator
    -PCB, IC, el. schematics
    -Controlling the position of the satellites, orbite calculation.
    -Mp3, avi, mpeg, divx, ogg, jpg, tiff, bmp, dvd, ecc. players/viewers.
    -Open office
    -Guitar rig 2 or 3
    -Nuendo



    KDE preferred.

    P.S. I think Gentoo would be best for the Sci&security part, but I'm really worried about it's possibilitys in the multimedia&recording part.


    Thank you very much.

    David.

    Welcome to the forums, Colex!

    The "what distro for me" type questions get asked quite often here, but you might have to experiment some to see what distribution best suites your personal tastes, and works best on your computer hardware.

    Check the link in my signature for lots of good information on getting started with Linux. You'll find some quizzes there that might help you to decide on a distribution.

    The main thing is to enjoy the Linux experience...

    Requirements:
    -Fast and stable. most distros are
    -LFS like above comment

    Applications:

    -Torrent most distros have torrent programs free
    -Instant messaging above comment
    -IPRoute above comment
    -Kmail not familiar with it
    -C++, Java, flash IDE and compilers. available for any distro i use fedora 8 for a c++ ide i use eclipse when simply typin code no ide necessary i use emacs as for compilers gcc is an excellent compiler and eclipse comes with one built in
    -Internet browsing without flash, java, otherfancylanguages problems.
    -Sci calculator available with most distros
    -PCB, IC, el. schematics above
    -Controlling the position of the satellites, orbite calculation. you lost me here
    -Mp3, avi, mpeg, divx, ogg, jpg, tiff, bmp, dvd, ecc. players/viewers. any distro supporting multimedia will have em
    -Open office downloadable for most distro's some even include it
    -Guitar rig 2 or 3 not sure
    -Nuendo not sure

    it narrows down to preferance, the things you named are not really what most distros are based on... you need to look at it from a more broad point of view not program list POV's... such as fedora is a good server and a good distro to use if you plan on running servers, SuSE is not as good for a server(sry to all SuSE fans) but more of a multimedia distro, and so on and so forth, hope this helped a bit.

    Nobody can tell you which distro is best for you. Try as many as you can and decide yourself. Check distrowatch.com and the link in my signature.
