    FSF or Linux Foundation
    I feel like such a noob for asking this, but i just cant seem to figure it out for myself. So i have to chase my pride away and just ask. My question is if it is "ok" or "accepted" to support both the FSF and Linux Foundation. By "ok" and "accepted" i mean in the sense it would not be like saying you are an atheist and a christian. If you get what i mean?

    RE: Need some good distro ideas
    i have never tried absolute linux so i cant say wether its bad or not, but i have read it does run on older hardware. But one i can recommend is puppy linux. Even though GNU/Linux does not need to demand as much of your system as Windows you can not expect it to run on air. The mainstream distros does need better hardware. Of course you can try and see how it works for you. Feel free to explore, not like it will ruin your economy. I would not even bother though. EDIT: had to reformulate a sentence.

    RE: Using Linux to fix Windows
    I have read about live cd's can be used to fix problems with windows, or save files. But some magic push of a button i have never read about, heard about or think exist. But maybe one of the two following links may help you: http://www.ubcd4win.com/ http://www.sysresccd.org/

    RE: best easy and complete distro
    Honestly, and i am not just talking as a startingtogetexperiencedlinuxuser. But, i mean, trust me, codecs and the likes is so easy to install (start add/remove and search for flash and whatever you need). Really. At least on Ubuntu, which is the distro i always recommend to newbies. If you, though, insist on having what you need, and stuff you probably do not need (which might also be included on ubuntu if you get picky), i vote for mint. Anywho. Good luck with your journey on the dark side
