New to Linux Hi, I am interested in trying out a few Linux operating systems. I have never used Linux before and was wondering what ones you guys recommend that I start out with? currently i am using windows xp home on a ASUS p5gc-mx motherboard with a AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3000MHz, 3071MB RAM, Seagate 320GB Hard drive, and NVIDIA GeForce 9400GT 512MB graphics card. I was going to buy a few Live cds and install and run them from usb flash drives to avoid having to partition the hard drive. Any thoughts??
