Hi :)
If you want to try Linux.
Do so know without changing anything on your PC.
Run live CD instead.
openSUSE provides 2 options.
Live GNOME.
Live KDE.

Personally I prefer KDE over GNOME.

If you like/prefer this type of OS.
Download & install the DVD version.
Though you can install from the Live CD's too.

Not only do you get an OS & Firefox browser.
But openoffice is there as well.

N.B. Other Linux is available... lol!

I prefer Gnome over KDE... I guess KDE is better for those wanting a more Windows like experience.

Hi :)
I also ditch FF in favour of Opera.



But that doesn't have anything to do with Windows... lol!

Hi :)
With openSUSE 11.2.64 bit.
It appears to be more ready to accept 64 bit additions/updates etc.
If you want to run 32 bit.
I didn't notice this aspect at all.
Yes, if wanting to "get away" from the "Windows" experience.
GNOME does take it one step further.

Hi :)
See here for KDE vs GNOME.

http://linuxreviews.org/software/desktops/

Many (like Sith Tracy I believe) use Ubuntu.

Here is a good article comparing KDE/GNOME using Ubutnu.

Yep, I use Ubuntu 64-bit and try other *nixes in VirtualBox. Ubuntu is a great distro. No other has given me a compelling reason to switch. FreeBSD is interesting though, but a little more advanced... fun to learn on in a VirtualBox.
