Linux and me? I have some questions pertaining to my growing interest in Linux. If you could either provide some definitive info or link to reading material I'd be eternally grateful 1. As this will be my first time using something other than DOS/Windows, is there a particular distribution of Linux that will be particularly user friendly (not necessarily simplistic, just easy to understand) and easy to get running succesfully? 2. What's the story with Window Managers? Do they come packaged with the OS distributions or do I need to make a decision about that as well? If they are a seperate issue, does anyone have recommendations? User friendly is also the modifier I'm looking for here. 3. I'm using a laptop with a D-Link brand wireless card. Will I be able to get this working given that its bundled software is Windows only? Running an ethernet cable isn't really an option. 4. Is it wise for a new user to run Linux exclusively? What are the pros/cons to running a dual-boot with Windows? 5. Software availability. What are my options for word processing, instant messanging, media (movies and music), CD burning, and last-but-not-least Diablo 2? 6. Am I an idiot for wanting to do this without a thick reference source on the subject? That'll do it for now. Thanks in advance y'all. edit: By the way, I'm already in the middle of downloading the KNOPPIX ISO. edit 2: What's the deal with Wine? Does it work?
