    I have tried like 20 or so different linux distros, most had some problem or an other.
    My first test is when I try it live, is the wireless card. The distro has to set it up for me, so literary my only job is to type in the wifi password. So far, I found only two distros that do that: PCLinuxOS (.rpm), and PinguyOS (.deb).
    Do you have any that just worked, you had to do no settings? What distro was it?
    By the way, if you are trying out many distros, instead of buying many DVDs, use unetbootin and install the distro on a FAT32 formatted (right mouse click, click format, FAT32) 2GB USB pendrive; It makes linux truly free.

    My First was SUSE
    Then ubuntu
    and now Xubuntu

    But I also still have a XP laptop for those things that Linux can't do

    I agree, I still have Vista. Although you can do anything through Wine, WMbox, and bunch of commands in the terminal, it is just easier to boot windows .Such thing for me include the mobile broadband internet connection (mostly I use wifi in Linux), and my forex trading software (MT4).
