We're getting rid of some old laptops at work so I snagged a couple to play around with Linux on them. I work in IT, but I'm not much of a Linux guy and frankly, I don't like playing around with computer stuff past 8-5pm anymore. Only reason I'm playing with Linux is that its free and I've heard it's very streamlined and uses less resources than Windows, which makes it perfect for these old laptops.
I downloaded Suse first. It's pretty nice but I ran into a few glitches trying to do day to day stuff. I then downloaded the latest Ubuntu and honestly, I'm pretty stunned so far at how polished it is. It seems to be a very sleek, and surprisingly intuitive OS. Only had it for a day so far but am really liking it.
Anyone else run Linux and have any comments? Any other distro's you'd recommend?
