So flash back to me restoring my old thinkpad, i installed xubuntu today just to give Linux a try and i must say im really enjoying it so far. Im especially in love with the fact that everything is free. The experience so far has been great and everything is alot easier then i thought it would be.
I think im going to try out Gentoo next, something a little more srs bsns. But seriously if you've ever been curious about Linux give ubuntu a try. You can try it right off the CD/USB or you can even download it within windows and not even have to partition your drive. Its really fun to move to something new and out of the ordinary after using windows for so long.
