I'm wanting to make a Linux Based Desktop from scratch .. can someone please tell me what i would need to make a powerful and Linux friendly desktop ?? I plan on using this for work and pleasure .. such as movies / music / documents and so on ... im open to different types of O/S of Linux ... my only requirement is that i need it to work with my Samsung LED TV .. it needs to be able to play video and audio through that. also any programs or desktop enviroments i would need to make life easier for work and just more fun to work with would be great ... Thank you in advance for your help :)

Just an after thought. If you want to learn how to create a Linux distro from scratch, try "Linux From Scratch".

If anything will show you how Linux distro's are built LFS will.

I'm currently running Debian 7.3, if your new to linux Ubuntu would be the best route to start with though. If not, I recommend Debian 7.3 (wheezy)
