    Well i've decided, after trying a few boot CD's, that i'm going to install Linux, the problem is there are so many distributions that it's hard to tell which one i should install.

    I know quite a bit about computers as i'm currently studying ICT in college so if a particular distribution is for the more technical user, that won't be a problem.

    Now, while i may know a fair bit about computers, i still like simple GUI's and would like a distribution that's easy to do the "basics" on, (such as instant messaging, emailing, web browsing etc etc.)

    Oh, another thing is, i'm quite into gaming, so obviously i'd like a Linux distrubution that won't be too difficult to get games running on, i've heard of some problems with gaming on some distributions.

    Thanks.Raspberry Ketone

    I'd have to say, Ubuntu is going to be your best bet. Linux Mint as well.

    I still prefer Kubuntu because I like many KDE apps.

    I'd vote for Linux Mint as well (or Xubuntu). Basically anything that doesn't use Unity.
