Effectively i’m getting my new pc soon, (quad core yada yada yada) which is going to be running Vista 64 (which will be new for me)
I intend to use my old pc (AMD64 4000+ ) into a linux machine for use as a gaming server at lans, and as a workstation for coding etc.
I’ve decided after looking at numerous suggestoins from people i know, that i’m going with the openSUSE distro.
HOWEVER i want to get a feel for it before i install somewhat, so i wanted to try the live CD out on my laptop. Thanks to a virus i have, which has stoped me installing and un-installing anything on my windows platform i’m reformatting soon anyway, so i’ll be dual-booting linux and windows on the laptop.
I just wanted to ask for the live CD as a total windows person, should i download the KDE or Gnome version
On a similar note, does anyone know any useful software to download for the linux system. (compilers anti-virus / spy software, stuff like that)
Thanks in advance.
