Thread: New To Linux

  1. #1
    I want the SIMPLIEST distro possible.

    heres what im lookin for:
    support for common file types (mp3,zip,exe,rar,avi...)
    internet already included
    and good hardware support so my wireless router will install easily without trouble so i can have the internet running.

    thats all. the noob guide to linux distros didnt really tell me much of what i was looking for. so what distro is most like what i want? sorry if ya'all think this is a stupid question...

    please help. a link to a download place would be nice to..

    thanks!
    Gaint Antispyware is the #1 greatest Spyware/Adware cleaner ever created, I recomend it to everybody, even if you don't think you need it.

    Mandrake would probably be best for you. You should be able to use all those file types except for exe, you will have to get wine. I don't know what you mean by internet already included, but if you mean utilities to set it up, Mandrake probably has plent of them.

    As for the router, google for "linux [your router name]" and see what comes up.
