*cough* PC-BSD

Really, BSD is great. PC BSD is really similar to Windows and OS X, allows for one click installs, based on unix and the skills you get in PC BSD are transferable to any other linux distro.

Also, BSD driver support is great, it is a fast OS and the software available is incredible.

Trust me, ditch linux and get PC BSD.

uuhhh.. PC-BSD is okay, i used it for about 4 months, and i am not sure about the one click installs you are talking about, but you can simplky navigate into the ports directories and do make && make install and it gets downloaded and installed for you including dependencies... :) FreeBSD r0x

Did you use PC-BSD before the PBI's came out?

Windows ME equipped with Microsoft Bob is probably the best choice of OS.
Huh?

I like Ubuntu or Kubuntu. Debian is also okay.

gentoo is the best. see for yourself.

yeah, i have to disagree with you on that, Emerge is shite, Portage is shite, and you have to do so much configuring that you might as well write you own fucking OS from code/scratch.  Gentoo is ass.  even the name sucks, and i hate typing it.

careful there, Trev.  i've never used gentoo linux, so i can't say one way or the other about it...but gentoo penguins are my very favourite kind of penguins.  so...knock gentoo linux all you want, but stay away from generalizations about the word gentoo.  you don't want to make these adorable little guys mad:

well version 2.6.24-17 of the kernel came out a little while ago. that is what we a talking about right? versions of linux? Oh, you meant distributions of the linux operating system. (GNU/Linux according to stallman) Depends on what you want to do with it. For everyday desktop stuff definitely ubuntu as it will support most hardware. For servers go with debian, or one of the bsds. or gentoo or whatever. I used arch linux for a bit, if you like doing stuff manually that is a good choice and if you like wasting your life getting it to support your hardware. :'(
