    So I have a multimedia machine I'm doing and I want to run an easy to use/flashy Linux. I've read about the latest Ubuntu 11.04, heard about Mint 10 from here and I've used an older Fedora (I think there is about to be a 15). I need one that I can get on a CD since I have a "low-speed" connection (56ker). Can I get a recommendation? I'll probably buy on eBay.

    never buy a dist on ebay, go to the dist's site and order a cd if necessary. open source on ebay is a scam.

    as for what dists, most offer cds/dvds in the mail for $1-3. I use ubuntu, but i am sure someone else
    can recommend the perfect fit for your application...
    Champ says thanks.
