Título: I want to switch over to linux
Publicado por: cmunoz en Diciembre 12, 2011, 08:32:55 am
I want to get serious about computing and use what's best for me, not just what Steve and Bill are trying to mass produce.
I installed Ubuntu, having heard of its ubiquity, but felt stuck by it's "user friendliness" and wanted to experience something without as much fancy panel in front of the gears.
I've become aware that there are a boatload of different interfaces available for the linux operating system, and want some advice or input on what would be a good place to start.
Thanks all!

I'd suggest you start by opening up a console and starting having a look from there. There are many things to try, so if you put some details regarding where you want to start from, maybe we can help.

Beautifully indeed.

There's basically 2 major branches which most distributions comes shipped with: KDE and Gnome, which you can customize in many ways.
Personally, I've never fancied Ubuntu, I've mostly stuck with Open SuSE.

I still use gnome 2x on ubuntu. It's not the most recent version though. I used to be a suse user, but around 2007 I switched to ubuntu.

Thank you all for the advice.
After a bit of research I decided to go with openSUSE and the XFCE desktop.
I've been using it for a little over a week now, and while there is obviously much to learn, I've been "having a lot of fun!"
Thanks again everyone!

good choose, I'm very happy in opensuse 12.1 from 2 weeks ago... but I'm in kde.
