what is the best any easiest to setup Linux distribution ?
« on: September 14, 2007, 12:05:04 PM »
Hi All,
please post your suggestion, what Windows users should try as their
Linux desktop distribution, which has a very simular usage
as Windows XP, so one has not much to relearn the
operating surface to handle ?

What would you suggest to install which distribution ?
Ubunto Studio ?
Kanotix ?
Debian ?

Just tell us, what you like and dislike.
What graphical surface is better ?
X
or
KDE
or which other one ?
Which is most simular to control like Windows XP ?
Please let us know.
Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

Hi HartiBerlin,

Some months ago I went from Win XP to UBUNTU and after some little misunderstandings sorted out I am now a Linux only user.
I must say I am very happy with it and should have done this years earlier.
My fav Windows only games I run with Wine and they run fine (Counterstrike and Counterstrike Source).
Ubuntu is Debian Linux (very stable) with a Gnome interface and you have to get used to it, but I like it after I found my way in it.
Some people like KDE more then Gnome because it looks more like Windows, but I have been told that Gnome is more stable so I stick with that.
If you like KDE better you could try KUBUNTU.
You can also try UBUNTU out by running it from CD-Rom so you can get a feel of it but it will be slow so be warned.
I am very happy with UBUNTU because I can do everything on it I could do with XP, but now for free and with auto updates without the DRM crap and other spyware.
Just thought of that,....have to install a Virusscanner still oops ::)
Maybe other distro's are just as good as UBUNTU I can't say much of all the others.
For UBUNTU goto:
http://www.ubuntu.com/community/ubuntustory/philosophy
I hope my info was useful.

Tink.

Hello,

I have used Linux for very many years now and the newest Distros are realy very good indeed.

The best plan is to use as many as you can untill you finally settle on one that you like.

Go to http://distrowatch.com/ and look down the right side to see a list of all the Distros that are popular at the present time. Choosing from the top ten is certainly recommended. Download their live cds and try each one out.

I love PCLinuxOS for my favourite all time distro, but before that it was Mepis. Ubuntu doesn't live up to its own hipe that it is an easy one for windows users to migrate to. It has a very un windows desktop and needs a lot of time to learn it, if coming straight from windows.

Live CDs have the option to install to your hard drive and include partion tools and installers that are wizard driven GUIs to make it as easy as possible for the first timer.

You will find adverts for cheap to buy Linux CDs that will save your downloading bandwidth. Priced at only a few pounds or dollars each they represent excellent value for money.

Hope this helps you to go FREE. It really is a breath of fresh air compaired to the big brother M$ operating system.

@lltfdaniel1  :good one!! ;D

How about Linspire (formarly knows as lindows)

The goal of the distro is to give windows users the most easy distro to get to know.
its debean based( i think)

I'm a die hard slackware fan myself :)

apt-get & Aptitude - versus - RPM or urpmi
« Reply #7 on: September 14, 2007, 10:45:12 PM »
Harti,
in Linux installing and uninstalling programs can be greatly complicated due to program dependencies.
Some people think that distros using RPM or urpmi are a nightmare compared to distros using apt-get & Aptitude.

> What graphical surface is better ?
> X or
> KDE
> or which other one ?

Which color is better for an auto?  Bue?  Green?  Red?   ??

With Ubuntu, you can try three different GUIs:

Ubuntu has Gnome as default
Kubuntu has KDE as default
Xubuntu has Xcfe as default
Xubuntu with "alternate" install, can be used on older computers with limited resources.

If you ask 100 people which is the best, you will have 100 different answers.

You can even have desktops on rotating 3-D cubes, but this takes more memory, faster CPU, faster graphics card, etc.

I suggest trying out all three versions of Ubuntu as live CD just to see which you prefer, and then install your preference.
A live CD is VERY slow, so it is just for testing, not for using.

There must be a reason why Ubuntu is the number 1 distro.  I suggest trying both Ubuntu and Kubuntu to start with.
The next version of Ubuntu is due in October.
Remember Ubuntu and Kubuntu come with both Gnome and KDE, and you can change from one to the other.
Search Google:
ubuntu change from gnome to kde

From the Net:
http://linuxfud.wordpress.com/2006/08/13/changing-from-ubuntu-to-kubuntu/

Than you for the information I was able to get it to work from the live cd Also I was able to get on the internet wirelessly under Gnome and KDE With Wep. Tried Knoppix 5.0.1 It was hell to do this.
Ubuntu Rocks!!!!!! All distros should allow the user to have all 3 desktops Gnome, KDE, and Xfce under a single login.

How important is generating PDFs to you?  Maybe this would influence your decision?

I use various linux distributions but the ones to try are the live cd ones.
Then when you get a feel for it you can install it on your disk by shrinking
the partition that is there if its not full then adding linux to the end of
the partition and then a grub menu boot lets you pick the one you want.


I like slax which is slackware but the real problem is getting
all the mix and matchesto work like your printer and your laptop
wireless card etc.

And the live cd will not get a virus....

At work some applications dictate the linux version so I don't get
to pick them.
Ask more if you need more.

I came accross this page which might clarify things a bit for you.


Linux is Not Windows!
http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm

But do try the live CDs and see which one you get on with.

@ Unicorn:
   Yep, them was the good old days. I am one program short of going all linux. I had a 486-133 (which I still have) to run linux on. Re-compiles took for ever but its what you had to do. I felt like the master of error codes for a while. I grew up in Unix so it was a natural for me to move over to it.

Fedora is my favorite distribution to use.  The newer versions require quite a bit of RAM though.

Hi,
I use Ubuntu - Breezy Badger? KDE desktop (I think), I will get around to upgrading to the latest version sometime.
Toying with getting that new glide interface to work with the graphics card - sort of 3D cube interface similar to Vista.

I was looking at another persons XP PC during the xmas break and it was so bogged down with virus scanners that even after 20 minutes after power on you could not use it. I think the PC needs a re-build and the McAfee virus scanner tweaking somewhat.

Regards
Rob
