    Welcome to .iso Confused!

    There will be some arguing, learning, and emotional investment happening in this forum- that is good. That is what Linux is about- freedom of choice.

    Remember that no matter which distro you choose- they are still different flavors of the same brand of ice cream-Linux.

    Right now I like Mepis, last year it was Slackware, before that it was Gentoo. Next year-who knows?

    If you're looking for something to be another Windows, you're in the wrong place. If you're looking for something that is limited only by the hardware, then welcome.

    I agree.

    Let me also add, you gotta choose a distro YOU like, not one somebody else suggests.

    To some extent it's a never ending process. I've tried dozens of different flavors of linux and arrived at my two favorites. If I hear of something new, I'll drop a machine and load up the new distro to check it out. http://www.distrowatch.com is an excellent spot to check out for various distributions.
    I do not want to tip toe through life just to arrive safely at death.

    There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

    Is this ice cream real, or metaphorical? If it is real, is it free, like free beer?

    I believe you can lick Linux, but i wouldn't recommend it, you might destroy you media or computer with the slobber.
