    Re: Getting a new Laptop.

    The openSUSE 10.3 live CD won't work for me. Just a black screen, so I don't know if I'll use it or not. If the 11 live CD won't work, I'm scratching openSUSE altogether.

    Yes I have heard of Arch, but not much about it. The only distros I've really used are Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu. I hate the Xfce DE, but Ubuntu/Kubuntu are great. Both have ups and downs.

    So far I'm thinking either Fedora, Kubuntu, or openSUSE.

    Good choices all of them. But you might also wanna try out Debian + KDEmod.

    I feel that Debian is much more stable and faster than Ubuntu or its derivatives. The testing aka Lenny is very stable and that's what you should use if you do go for Debian.

    Kubuntu is too bloated, IMO and so is Ubuntu. Fedora is alright. Haven't used openSuse, so I cannot comment on that.

    I'll give Debian a try on a live CD later.

    Also, the toggling with the DE's.. I meant that I heard that Fedora had both Gnome and KDE selectable in startup, without having to install extras.
