Bought a new laptop last week, immediately dropped Linux on it. biggrin.gif

Decided to try Mint out, one great thing over Ubuntu with Unity....the cube works flawlessly with no stress, and I LOVE the cube. I can finally see why people don't like Unity.....it's pretty out of the box, but you can't easily change much about it yourself.

It's Mint11 Katya, based on Ubuntu (GNOME) with cube, deformation, skyview image, and conky running. Not sure if I'll keep it, it's very reminiscence of Windows (menu in bottom left, task bar on bottom right, ect). Makes it a great "gateway" distro smile.gifbiggrin.gif

I may try Arch to go into deeper Linux waters.......

Why not also consider Debian? You get a ground up install of something familiar and stable. More and more frequently I see people get hyped up to use Arch to "move to something more advanced" and then see them complaining afterwards, because they didn't understand what they were getting into.

Arch isn't just "more complicated" GNU/Linux. It has it's own development philosophy (like every other distro) that is fairly controversial that you might not like. I mostly see Arch as a distro for people who like running all of the latest software and don't mind things breaking (constantly) so that they can help submit patches and fix the upcoming generation of software, so that it's stable for everybody else. If you often find yourself feeling "lost in the water" with problems using stable software, Arch might be frustrating.

I've seen people who've used Arch for years switch distros and suddenly talk smack on Arch. They just finally realized how important stability and some of the other Arch tradeoffs are to them. It doesn't make you any smarter to know how to run an Arch system, mainly because Arch doesn't have a commercial purpose. Some looking to learn GNU/Linux for job reasons might call it a waste of time.
