Sorry about the second thread..I have a few questions today!

yeah I'd go with ubuntu too.

And I'd really expect that the active members would make the threads in the right sections..

What's wrong with here, I am asking advice, on choosing an operating system, based around particular hardware

Stop trying to point the finger at everybody, if I had really done, or have done something wrong, a mod can simple move it. Report the post if you want to, if you really want the bother.

I just followed that link and downloaded ubuntu. Chose save to disc. Download completed and winrar opened. Chose not to unrar it thinking I would do it later. Now I can't find it on my system. Great, 697mbs gone into thin air. Can't believe it's not saved the file.

First impressions of Linux aren't going so well!

Well I just think that this should be in the Operating systems section because the question is most related to operating systems. No need to feel offended, I was just saying it because there really is a lot of threads in here which should be posted in their own section. (that's why the sections are there right?)
