    Or it could be a hardware issue, especially if the computer is at the most common point of failure (new - ish) do other discs burn OK?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Have you tried using UNetbootin to make a "Live" USB of the Distro you'd like to check out or install? It's stupid simple to do, just download UNetbootin in Ubuntu(sudo apt-get install unetbootin) then log into it and point it at the iso you'd like to make "Live" on your USB stick.
    One little tip, use a fast USB stick like a SanDisk Cruiser Glide or Patriot Rage XT and it'll run faster Live or install faster if you want to do that.

    True... that was my second thought.
    Maybe that can be checked out in the near future,by burning a disc from the new native install.

    I plan on opening my laptop's core and cleaning it, i see that my fan is packing up dust, i'm still not sure if it has something to do, but i'll give it a shot, it might speed up my computer or lower the heat rate of it too.

    Anyways i also found another USB burner called ImgBurn.
    But, now to get to the actual point of the post, i preffered Pear OS since it's a more complete OS, even thought it made my booting more complex, because i put the booting files in the wrong directory, that's my choice, in case someone had the same doubt as me.

    I plan on giving 20 GB to every new OS that i give a **** to install.


    Anyways im going straight to the point.

    What's better?:

    1. Elementary Luna OS
    2. Pear OS X
    3. Pinguy OS

    I can maybe install to of these at a time but i would preffer installing one, thank you!
    Better for what?

    Wouldn't that be relevant to what you need an operating system to do?

    A Cadillac sedan might be better than a Jeep to some, but if you go offroad, I doubt the Cadillac would be of much use.

    Better is a relative term.

    I think you'll notice that if you make a "Live" USB using UNetbootin that 99.9% of the Distros will have an Install option on the desktop so you can not only check out the Distro to see if it'll find your WiFi and work with your video card but also install it if you like it.
    Most of the time I'll use a Live USB for install since it's much faster then using a CD/DVD for install.
    Also, while Point Linux isn't perfect it's very close IMHO. I had to install a few things that I normally use but that's par for the course for most Distros that I've used since none of em' have stuff I use straight out of the box.
    I think you could do a lot worse then Point Linux OS. I really think you should give it a fair shot.

    Have you taken a look at ZevenOS Neptune 3.2 It's a great stable OS based on Debian and KDE4 I've been using Linux Distros for 4 years now and this was the most stable one I ran across so far, Ubuntu=buggy, Linux Mint=pretty good but also Buggy, Opensuse not to bad but for advanced users. Debian 7 great but for advanced users also. With Neptune 3.2 you can customize every square inch of it and then some. It's fast it uses Zram to speed things up also, which stores programs you just used into the ram so every time you click on them they pop up faster. Also very nice system sound scheme. I just installed this last week and I'm loving it so far. Check it out at ZevenOS.com give it a shot.
