    You're a beginer?

    Kubuntu is an official derivative of the Ubuntu operating system using the KDE graphical environment instead of GNOME. It is part of the Ubuntu project and uses the same underlying system. Kubuntu and Ubuntu can work alongside each other by installing the ubuntu-desktop and kubuntu-desktop packages. Every package in Kubuntu shares the same repositories as Ubuntu

    Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need - a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more.

    Linux Mint is an operating system for personal computers. While Mint is mostly based on (and compatible with) Ubuntu, the design of the user interface is considerably different. Design differences include:
    • A distinct user interface, including a simplified bootloader, desktop layout, theme, and the custom Mint menu.
    • A strong focus on full functionality out of the box (E.g.: Wireless drivers included, plugins required to play common media formats installed by default, screen resolution automatically set, etc.).[1] Linux Mint 6 also includes or features a free flash player so you can watch things on the Internet like YouTube for example.
    • The Mint Tools, a collection of system tools designed to make system management and administration easier for end users.

    openSUSE is a general purpose operating system developed by the openSUSE Project. After acquiring SUSE Linux in January 2004, Novell decided to release the SUSE Linux Professional product as a 100% open source project, involving the community in the development process. The initial release was a beta version of SUSE Linux 10.0, and as of December 2008 the current stable release is openSUSE 11.1.

    Linux can run on any age of computer whether it be a few months, years or centurary.

    If you have outdated hardware then I would look into DSL, Puppy or Knoppix.

    How are you finding Ubuntu?

    Ubuntu ran nicely on my old computer, it was just that I couldn't get any gpu driver to work, so I never bothered to use it.

    I find ubuntu really easy to use, I managed to install compiz and I've been playing with it quite a lot
    I still have a lot to discover and learn.

    Currently I'm on windows as I need it for my gaming needs.
    I have no idea if it's possible to game on linux, I read something about 'playonlinux' and 'wine', I will probably try them out later on.

    Get Cedegar (Not free but look ) or Wine Free.

    Open Terminal and enter

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine
