What OS should I install on random new computer that I have?

It's for random friends who neglect their laptops... Hmm... Win7? I'd rather have something non-NT so that it can play older DOS games...

Hmm...I'd say Linux Mint if you can handle WINE to anyd degree, otherwise any 32-bit Windows, NT's included, should work fine.

just do like i did, and opt for the x86-bit version of Win7. this way, i still have the capabilities to run newer stuff, but i can run my old games too. :3

Linux Mint is awesome, I wish I had a computer capable of running it. (Is installed on k8, but she won't stay on for more than a few minutes >__>)

OSX 10.6, still. When you have the best, why use anything else. owo

Aurora Borealis

I'm still using 10.5. I just never got to upgrading, in part because Inkscape 0.46 doesn't work with 10.6. :(

Bella

...huh? I had Inkscape 0.46 installed... now I have 0.47.

Aurora Borealis

Back when 10.6 was released, I heard that from articles about its compatibility with major apps was that it didn't support Inkscape 0.46. Oops. ^^;

Btw, I'm on windows 7.

They're both free, so why the hell are you spending money on them?

I'm getting the disks and they both cost money.
Well whatever, probably not gonna get it.
I just finished downloading Lubuntu. AND OH MY GOD, THE DOWNLOAD WAS SO FAST.

It's a valid question, but you shouldn't be so snippy about it. :  |

Personally, I don't get why anyone would send away for any Linux CDs - I mean, even with a slow connection a download might take a few hours, while it could be weeeeeeeks before you get your CDR in the mail. And there's the matter of S&H... >______>

Ubuntu costs nothing to be shipped to you.  I got mine for free.

But. I. don't. know. why.

Whyyyyyy would anybody send away for a CDR when they could just download it and have instant (or, helluva lot quicker than snail-mail) gratification?! : \

huh. weird. I had to pay for mine and I got them off the ubuntu website.

I burned Lubuntu to a CD and ran it for a trial run on my computer. I LOVED IT. I'm installing it right now. So far, Lubuntu is my all-time favorite
