    Linux distro (College/Development)
    Hello, I am currently following a college (4 years to go) about Software Development. The following programs will be mainly used on my laptop: Microsoft Office/Open Office; Java development (Eclipse software); Dropbox; Skype; Browsing. However, I am looking for a distro that is not to heavy. I don't need fancy desktop environment tools, as long as the desktop is clean and modern enough to use modern applications (for example; Skype). My laptop specifications: [list] [*] Intel core i5 processor [*] ATI Radeon 7730M, 2GB [*] 8GB RAM [/list] I tried Fendora, but GNOME 3 is not my cup of tea. Perhaps you can tweak the environment to make it more clean and faster. Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    I am currently following a college (4 years to go) about Software Development. The following programs will be mainly used on my laptop:

    Microsoft Office/Open Office;
    Java development (Eclipse software);
    Dropbox;
    Skype;
    Browsing.

    However, I am looking for a distro that is not to heavy. I don't need fancy desktop environment tools, as long as the desktop is clean and modern enough to use modern applications (for example; Skype).

    My laptop specifications:

    • Intel core i5 processor

    • ATI Radeon 7730M, 2GB

    • 8GB RAM

    I tried Fendora, but GNOME 3 is not my cup of tea. Perhaps you can tweak the environment to make it more clean and faster.

    Thanks in advance.
