What? Me ask what flavor of Linux to run? With all the hype of Star Wars, have I been consumed by the dark side??? On the contrary, I have been running a version in a virtual environment, and now have a old old machine, where I am comfortable running it natively. So, what version do you recommend and why? I do need a GUI since its been a while I worked in any of the Linux/Unix shells? I think I can guess the version Karan is going to recommend. ;)
