Hi from NYC

I just signed up. im not that new to linux but I still a MS user because i am a hobbyist gamer.

I don't know everything in Linux and im trying to find a distro that will appeal to everything on my list of wants.

Looks Good
Easy to use
Everything i need pre-installed
Not too heavy.

I tried ubuntu, linux lite, linux mint, pclinuxos and now im going to try pinguy os. I Iike Gmome 2 and XFCE desktops

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

  • welcome mate!

    Try Voyager, it works quite nicely out of the box and looks incredible with its tuned-up xfce. I love it. That or Bodhi Linux, You can't go wrong with them. Cheers!

    Welcome, dude! glad to have another person here! :D

    and as for the distro choice, you leave quite a bit to guessing with "Everything I need preinstalled", what all do you need? that would certainly narrow down the choices to search through, and it's never a guaruntee everything will be preinstalled (i.e. codecs and proprietary drivers due to licensing issues)

    Your absolutely right. I didnt mention what i needed. My main concern with any linux distro is that i would be able to play most or all my windows 7 stream games thru Linux. i dont own but 3 linux type games.

    I use to use Cedega but now thats gone so this is why i am not a full time linux user.

    Welcome to the LDC just keep exploring Distros till you find what fits - Being a Windows user - XFCE as a desktop is a good starting point.
