I was considering fedora and debian, but was wondering whether anybody has used something that they prefer above the previous two.

  2. I have used Fedora through vmware and have a copy of Xandros which I think is deb based on a laptop, both were quite good but I didn’t think the config tools were that easy to use.

    I have used Suse since version 8.1 and now use OpenSuse version 10.2 I have ditched windows completely and I think it is good enough to use as a high end home user, I don’t think the other distros I have tried are. Where I think OpenSuse has the advantage is in hardware detection and configuration, it uses yast2 to configure the machine and it is quite easy once you get used to it. It’s slightly similar to the windows control panel but you can config much more than windows will allow.

    You can download it from here:
    http://download.opensuse.org/

    including the addon CD which has all the closed source drivers and programmes that Novell aren’t allowed to ship with it, it’s free without support, if you want a boxed copy go to:

    http://www.novell.com/products/opensuse/?sourceidint=productsmenu_linuxprofessional

    there is 90 days installation support and a very good manual.

    email me if you want any further help.
