Default Re: Os

LTS Means long term support it means its not planned to go out for a while and its one of the newer versions and it also has a stable core. I would agree with them as well on this one..

I second (acutally 4th!) the Ubuntu. It's a very stable, I've used it on my secondary laptop for quite some time and am very pleased with it.

Default Re: Os

it's pretty easy to download the ISO file for Linux distros and then burn the file on to a CD - look for ones that say "Live cd"
That means you can load it at boot up - it will run from the CD or DVD so you can try it out.- then there's an install link right on the desktop if you want to install it.

my favs so far- Ubuntu, Mepis, PCLinuxOS - also a Puppy Linux, DSL (damn small Linux)

Just Google Linux distros and do a bit of reading about the different ones
- or you can buy a linux magazine that has live CD/DVDs in them
-or even got to the library and check out a book than has a Cd/DVD inside

If you have nothing for a OS now - simple and freeeee
