Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

lm2mst and diogo, which 'distrobutions' do you suggest i try.

Depends on your current or target hardware and what the purpose of the OS is.

Give some specs and I'll help you to pick the right distribution.

As many confirm, *BSD and GNU/Linux have a lot to offer over Windows XP.

On let's say a Pentium IV CPU with 512 MiB RAM, the Desktop Environment isn't an issue. I for example run KDE with Compiz-Fusion on a Dell Optiplex GX240 (P4 1,70 Ghz), 384 MIB RAM and old school nVIDIA Geoforce 2 MX/400... And that's a general purpose desktop on which I love to play FPS like Alien Arena and the likes. A typical server system, requires less.

And for the modding down part: I HAVE NEVER MODDED DOWN EVEN ONE COMMENT on OSNEWS, in all those years and never will!

++ BTW, it's ML2MST, the callsign of my old school MS-DOS based CB Packet Radio station ;-)

Cheers!
