    Different people use different OS's for different reasons, I know for the longest time I was a die hard wingdows 98 se user because of the backwards compatability with older software but could also run newer software. But i have since changed OS.


    Current OS: Windows XP Pro
    File System: FAT 32 (I know as a rule it runs on NTFS but there is a way to get it to run FAT 32)
    Pros: Runs smoothly with minimal bugs, nicer interface and can be tweaked to be backwards compatable with some effort.
    Cons: a bit of a space and memory hog
    Reasons: My windows 98 se disk got scratchedand couldn't purchase it any more so I had to go with xp.

    Windows XP Home Edition (family computer) I will be getting a new computer soon, whether it be laptop or desktop, and I will probably use Pro.

    Did you download the GNU/Linux? If so, where can one download it?

    I have Windows XP on my desktop & notebook computers; my old Win98 conked out on me :(

    I don't know if I have FAT 32 or not?

    I would venture to say that Fedora Core 3 , or Mandrake Linux would be the best for a newbie. And you most likely have NTFS, not FAT 32 (it's a good thing, don't worry).

    I have used that somewhere before...not that good. I prefer P.H.L.A.K. or SuSE, sometimes Mandrake or Slackware.

    I was thinking of moving to Slackware Linux, as a friend of mine once suggested me, but Im sticking with Windows XP Home in my laptop (was XP pro until cousin reset it to home week before Thanksgiving). Other than that, I'm using XP Pro on my dell PC/Server, so I'm covered. (both NTFS)

    I ordered 15 actually... Does that mean i'll get 30?! Lol

    For live cd's, i stick to Danix & PHLAK, i've only recently started with PHLAK however. I've heard good things about the SuSE Live Eval CD, apparently its pretty fast for a run-from-cd.

    Linux

    Eh. If you want Linux there are two options buy the book "Red Hat Fedora Linux 2 Bible" by Christopher Negus like I did and you get Fedora 2 Core cd's with it. Not to be for $50. Second you could wander your self over to this link . I don't know if its legal but I would say if you are a cheap skate go there. BUY THE BOOK ITS GRAND :D
