A simple distribution, no fancy 3D interface, no window transparency..
I'm using Linux at work, essentially for doing big computation.
I've been using Ubuntu for a while but it has become a pain, essentially because the graphics are too demanding. I'm considering changing, but I don't want to get into the same trouble after installing another one.
I need a neat interface (gnome was just perfect!) that will let me use my tools (developed in a programming environment called MATLAB), with minimal 3D support (OpenGL), and broadcast X screens to individual stations, ideally using NX, which everybody uses to log into our main computer. 64bit architecture is a must, as we are using lots of RAM (24GB installed at the moment).
In sum, I need a simple interface, no fancy look, no window jiggle, no transparency, just something that works. Will I find this somewhere?
Any suggestion is appreciated, thanks a lot!
