    Yes, but this is SPECIFICALLY designed too, and i wondered if it was any good. So don't be a dick and be sarcastic, when i was only asking a ----ing question.

    Maybe so. I've heard that ubuntu has an easy GUI but SuSe's is much more easier. I'm recommending SuSe because I've installed it and all you do is sit back and watch most of the time.

    I do agree, I prefer SuSE over ubuntu because the GUI is very polished among other things and easy to use, the YaST control center is very nice and it's all organized well (SLED menu pwns) and overall you can do more things without ending up using the command line. SuSE is also more stable than ubuntu in my experience, i had ubuntu crash on me more than any other distro. SuSE isn't exactly difficult to install(although it's annoying when you use the 5 cd's and have to switch, I used the DVD) it just takes forever.SuSE just seems much more polished.

    they both can use the same GUI so the point is mute.

    Ubuntu opts for the gnome GUI while Suse used KDE by default

    both distros can use the other GUI though. I personally find Gnome easier to use, but KDE does feal a bit more like windows, but that's the onle real ---.

    when it comes down to it, all the installing will be done in text-line form so again the GUI point is nothing.

    I'll have to agree with the 5CD thing when installing SuSe. Installing SuSe isn't in text-line form xelink, at least I didn't type anything to install O_O. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    I was referring to actually installing programs within the OS.

    most distros have some sort of GUI installation for the most part.

    installing linux can be easier than installing windows, heck it probably is.

    Ahh yeah, but it isn't as much as something like Gentoo or even ubuntu imo.

    For some, and for others, it can be a huge pain.

    1) No get ubuntu its fast and friendly.
    2) how could it not be worth it? ITS FREE!
    3)just dual boot it with a mac OSX and get WINe for ubuntu. you can use all apps for all OS's.

    That's exactly what you should do. It's very nice and easy and I had no problems when I did it :)
