Need some linux help
I am a little worried about driver compatibilities. I will need to run a quad-core CPU, Intel Core 2 Quad. And other various devices such as an HD-Tuner Card, a 1Gb Video Card, and a 7.1 Hi-Def Surround Sound Card (preferably with optical out).
I am sure Linux can do this without any lag or crashes, but will it be user-friendly?
My main question is will this work smoothly?
P.S. - Would Redhat or Fedora be better for this? The case I will be using has a 7" touchscreen LCD on the front.

Linux can do this just fine, especially with that hardware. As far as drivers, for the most part you won't have much issues, just do a little googling before making the actual purchase to find out the specifics. The biggest issues I forsee is the touchscreen and the hd tuner card. These might not be an issue though, I'm just not familiar with that hardware.
