What Distribution will be right for me?
My computer is 2x 64 ADM with 4 Megs of ram on a acer laptop
Currently I am running windows home premium. The salesman talked me into an extra 2 Megs of ram. It was not until later that I found out I was only using 32bits and 2megs. I would like to take advantage of my hardware.
In the past I tried installing umbuntu on some older machine and had trobule with installing drivers. Then I came across gos and it has been running better than anything I have seen on my older machines. I wanted to install it on my acer but wanted to make sure it would be the best fit.
I mostly work with tons of tabs open in my browser
need to go back and forth from windows and Linux like tab browsing if possible
Use both 64bit processor and all 4megs of ram
I use the computer for internet marketing and would love to hear you ideas. I really love gos but want to know if this is the best for my top machine
RE: What Distribution will be right for me?
Many people prefer to start with Ubuntu and there is a lot of community support & documentation for people new to Linux.
There are many to choose from and I think the best way to know which you will like best is to try them out using a 'Live CD' .
About Live CDs:
You can run a variety of Linux distro's from a 'Live CD' and you don't need to install it, it runs from your RAM (memory) and doesn't change your computer unless you choose to install it or unless you modify files manually.
Basically you can try before you commit.
Only you can decide what is right for you but Ubuntu is a popular distro for people new to Linux.
