    I spent more than a month to put that package together. I am pleased that it is of some use.
    It is

    And since we're on the subject, how do you rate Zorin? Is it a better Linux experience than the other distros? I've bren wanting to try it for ages...

    Zorin is the easy entry point to Linux. You get a complete system and really have to do nothing to run it. I tuned mine a bit to reduce the options that I don't need (as you can see in the video), but that is not really necessary. The only iffy setup is for the VMware Tools. But that I explain in the tutorial that is referenced in the video. No rocket science, just lengthy going thru all the commands that I provide here.

    The complete opposite is Fedora. There you get a bare bone system with which you can do nothing - can't even play a song or a video. And if you are not expert in Terminal (their rather complex Command Prompt), forget it. You don't go anywhere.

    Another good option that I like is Mint Mate (not the other Mint distros). Watch the first video and then have a look at the second picture link. The setup is a bit more involved than Zorin but very simple thru the UI. And the VMware Tools is only 2 commands.

    I went with Linux Mint Mate, as per your recommendation from a previous post and have found that I rather like it.

    I don't know whether you saw this package I made. It may be helpful - lot's of Mate tutorials included.

    True. I love the look of Fedora but am not terminal fluent so it really doesn't work for me. Still muck about with it but nothing major.

    I don't know. Even the Fedora look did not impress me. I got thrown out of their forum because I made a few not so positive comments, LOL. These guys are really up tight and believe in their stuff. I guess it does not hurt to be enthusiastic about what you are doing.

    There was a rumor back in Windows 8 that it would support Xbox 360 games.
    That is also one of the goals I do believe. And it is possible now, but they have to be coded in XNA I think.
    It's still in it's infancy thought, I think.

    I can't believe anybody throwing whs off of a site. Makes me wonder about using Linux. How would one ask for help on such a site without getting in trouble.
