Re: Any Distro Reccomendations?
vBulletin/nV News needs some sort of "canned reply" à la Sourceforge. ;-)
Since you're new to Linux, your best shot is to think about people you know or can contact, and pick distribution they use. If you're not lucky enough to have one, I'd suggest you to try Ubuntu. Personally I use Debian, but many people prefer Ubuntu over Debian. Also, while smaller distributions (in name and size) may sound tempting, they're usually more suitable for people familiar with GNU/Linux since help isn't as easily available.
Christianity, noun: The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
