I have had Vista(30 days essay) for quite a while, and even if I know that I can crack Vista to be able to use it forever, I'm thinking of using Linux instead, everybody thinks its so wonderful. So this is what I want to know, What distribution should I use and, will my hardware have drivers for linux. I have: -A dualcore computer for x86 and x64(only tried a Vista beta x64 to see if x64 was supported, installation failed) Intel Pentium D -A 3com 3CRWE254G72 wireless adapter(usb) >> Linux driver? -A Sony DVD writer. So with a suitable Linux distribution, will I be able to: -surf the internet -download torrents with utorrent(WINE?) -use my microsd card reader -burn .iso wii backups -Play games Can all of you point me out for all of these things Illusion Edit:Will I be able to use photoshop or any other powerful image prog?
