Thank you, Ubuntu.

Can't wait to test it out a little more.

Hi anonimnystefy,

You may try linux mint if you don't like ubuntu's interface.

Also, you can boot linux distros from usb flash drives using unetbootin.

Hi gAr

I like Ubuntu's interface. What is Mint's like?

Hi bobbym

Wine allows you to install windows software to linux. I used for a couple of programs and it worked fine.

Hi,

Mint's interface is more like the windose interface which you're used to : http://news.softpedia.com/news/Linux-Mint-13-MATE-Screenshot-Tour-271500.shtml

Hi bobbym,

No, I did not try the latest ubuntu, 9.10 was the last one I used. After that they messed with the interface I liked.

I started using the ubuntu derivative after that.

What do you think of ubuntu?

They have retained the Gnome 2, I like it.

Other than that, it has most of the softwares and codecs I frequently use, so I can directly boot the flash drive into any computer and use the way I want to.
