Topic: You know this whole "woo, Linux r0x0r, down with M$ Windowz" stuff..
For average Joe (or average Joey) who is pissed off with his computer being a glorified tin can, is installing a Linux variant of any use to me?
I have a spare 40GB HD in my computer that has never been used, and I just thought I could have a little dabble in this whole "Down with Windows" debacle. I had a look around and there are a few that run with windows, but to me this defeats the point really.
Can I not just choose some decent, free, not-hideous-looking variant that I can choose to boot with when my fancy takes it (i.e. when XP pisses me off).
