    RE: Should I keep the same distribution or update to new one?
    I like bleeding edge software as well. More so, like the newest and latest. If you must upgrade, make sure it will benefit what you are trying to do. If the system you have works fine then keep it, that is my opinion. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoy 12.04 LTS. I like it better than the last version. Keep tinkering.

    RE: Running Bibleworks 8 and Office 2010 with linux?
    Can you tell us the specs of your computer, model, memory, cpu and disk space? This will help us determine the best OS to use. I recommend downloading linux mint in place of windows. Compatible with some of windows apps, but you can use wine to install MS applications. [url=www.linuxmint.com]Linux mint[/url]

    RE: Linux for touchscreen
    You can also look into ubuntu which is known to work with most touchscreen devices. Actually any linux OS can be tweaked to work with touchscreen so long it supports the hardware and has the drivers for "event" input. IMHO, stick with any ubuntu/debian based linux distro and you should have little difficulty running linux on you tablet.

    RE: Best way to get started on Linux
    Not sure about the keyboard, but you can definitely use ubuntu for pictures and videos. If you have the system for it, download ubuntu 12.04 and select "install third party software" when the installer starts. In fact, you are better off installing linux mint 10 on your system or if it is powerful enough, linux mint 12. It is based off ubuntu and has all the latest codecs for video and audio processing. You don't have to remove windows XP, just dualboot it with mint and you will have both XP and mint on the same system. That way you can still use your favorite apps.
