Began with Ubuntu, moved on to Xubuntu on powerful comps and Puppy for low end comps / USB install. I've found Puppy is much better than DSL for usability and setup. Fixed, I don't update that much as well. Graphical, I'm still new to Linux so command line confuses me. Xfce is what I usually use, still packs plenty of features with a small footprint. Opera, can't stand failfox (too much like IE, cbf finding/configuring addons). I usually have just 2, but coming from windows I almost never use the second. Whatever text editor comes with the distro! Never got into servers, so I haven't a clue. GUI definitely, I don't have the time to learn all the commands and shortcuts to make CLI more efficient than GUI. Uuuuuh.... what? Nope, haven't heard of it. Personally I don't use Linux that much, but I used to use it quite a bit when I had my P4 desktop and old Dell laptop (PIII 850 MHz), ended up getting sick of Ubuntu (XP and Windows 7 was faster) so I switched to something fast. I've had a lapse from Linux usage with my new laptop and desktop, but I'm probably going to dual boot on my laptop with something really fast for web browsing, listening to music and checking emails. Any suggestions for what I could put on my laptop that wouldn't break my windows installation?
