Indeed, the Gnomy interface is pretty slick... KDE is soooo easy too!

Proceed to your nearest vendor ;-)))

I started with the bits and then the packaged Slackware... moved
on to RedHat... then Turbo Linux, Debian, and Caldera with StarOffice
apps in as a freebie for personal use... RedHat 6.0 with StarOffice
finally and now behold... there's an even newer version at Staples
with WordPerfect suite included... my my my can't wait till payday! :-)))
I would suggest going with WinLinux for newbies and if not then
the Caldera with KDE... a little more fancy still is the RedHat flavor
with more goodies and Gnome Gui (Xwindow) front end.
I dual boot... actually quintuple boot :-) thanks to the System
Commander shell... thank you very much, lilo... too and it
co-exists with NT... Planning on trying out the new Release
Candidate 2 that just came out... and setting time aside to
re do the machine once Microsoft makes a mess of things
so if I'm missing from Conlang for a while you'll know why :-)))
