(OT) What Linux distro? [message #186104] Fri, 12 January 2007 10:54 Go to next message

I'm coming from a Windows world, and am looking to set up a Linux
machine for evaluation. I would need to run Eclipse, Tomcat, Firefox,
Thunderbird, OpenOffice, and maybe Jajuk.

What distro would you recommend for an experienced programmer/IT guy who
is a Linux newbie? I played just a little bit with Redhat several years
ago and got it running, but I couldn't find the apps I needed, so it
never really went anywhere; they seem to be available now.

It will be running on relatively wimpy hardware, if that factors into
the answer.

TIA!

I have recently switched from Windows to Ubuntu linux. It is simple as
windows. All hardware detected correctly, except my tv-tuner.

Thanks! It looks like Ubuntu comes with most of the stuff I need
already on the image. Since you are an Eclipse user, is it safe to
assume that Eclipse runs ok on it as well?

I don't use eclipse from Ubuntu repository because it currently doesn't
contains php ide. I just downloaded and unpacked eclipse from
eclipse.org, and it works fine.
