Why dont we start a Linux Distro Debate/ Pros $ Cons thread? You know, to help those on the fence with linux. Lets try this format:
1. General machine configuration (Latop/Desktop, OS Before Linux, Processor Speed Ram, HD Space, etc)
2. Linux Distro of Choice
3. Why you chose it
(optional) 4. Pros and Cons
Feel free to reply/comment/debate!
1. Desktop, previously ran Win. XP MCE, 2.5 Dual, 500 GB/2 Drives
2. Ubuntu 7.04 Fiesty Fawn.
3. I'd heard so much about it and thought it might be a good thing to try.
4. Pros and Cons
+Very Powerful OS
+Strong Support Team/ User Base
-Moderatly difficult to setup
-Lots of command line stuff
-Easy to mess up (DON'T TOUCH XORG.CONF!!!)
