Just based from your explanation for using Linux, I can assure you that you will not use Linux long. People always think Linux is the answer simply because they are annoyed at Windows. This is the worst reason to use Linux.

My advice...buy a Mac.

Now can you list the reasons why you tell people to buy a Mac. You need to support your answer. The original poster said that he saw what he likes + he didn't like Windows = he wants Linux.

People start these threads like "I hate M$" or something along those lines and then install Linux expecting it to be day in and out like Windows, just free. This is never the case in from what I always see, they always end up going back to Windows (which is fine) but I think more research needs to go into these claims of switching.

Time will tell if Linux ends up being his savior.

that is true, but the poster did say that he likes Linux, that's why he decided to make the switch, but as you said, only time will tell

I have not read this entire thread but you can't go wrong with Ubuntu. It will detect hardware not yet even invented. That are you can just install Debian and impress all the ladies.

I hate Ubuntu, it is annoying!! It overrides your settings and it doesn't allow me to open an extra X window. That's why I keep switching back to SuSE Linux, because it's the best.
