    I have an ubuntu cd, thinking about putting that on it. Not very literate of linux, is this a pretty easy to learn distro?
    Im just using it for web surf, mail, watching movies, shit like that. No gaming.

    Ubuntu is very easy to install and use. It will probably even detect your wireless card automatically if you have one (most laptops have Intel Pro based wireless cards, which it detects quite nicely).

    ^My opinion also. If your not comfortable with Linux I would "buy" Win2k off of bit-torrent. Runs clean and has the compatibility and friendliness of Windows.

    omg I want to fucking slap you... you are a fucking asshat fucktard.

    can SOMEONE just stop suggesting piracy??? It's not going to kill you to actually PAY for someone's hard work. I hope someone smashes your car and your insurance doesn't cover it so that you actually feel what it's like.
