Finally able to try Linux…

I have a slightly older PC based upon an Intel P4 2.8GHz on an 865GLC mobo w/2G RAM, ATI Radeon 9600AIW that I use for testing XP MCE and Vista Beta. This machine is able to boot the Live CDs for Ubuntu, Freespire and Mandriva. I have also booted the PC Linux OS TR3.

So far, I’m drawn to the Freespire distro. It appears to be the closest to XP Pro. When booting from the LiveCD though, it defaults to the Install option unless you intervene with a keystroke – which seems slightly dangerous.
