    Chasing the ball

    You might also give Arch a try. Similar to gentoo but not quite. I prefer it.

    8800GTX and Compiz Fusion

    I wouldn't advise Gentoo for a first time user either, Then I would rather try arch, which is (in my opinion) easier because it doesn't rely on compiling, and pacman is excellent.

    8800GTX and Compiz Fusion

    Nothing is perfect. Also installing from within windows isn't very advisable, imo. Glad you haven't given up, though

    Arch Linux with Awesome WM Taken in floating mode (rarely use it) specifically for this thread. xD

    8800GTX and Compiz Fusion

    To get the livecd to boot, instead of pressing enter when you get to the first menu (where you choose to go into the live environment and install ubuntu), you press F6 for extra options. There you change splash into nosplash, and press enter. You could also remove quiet. Hope that helps...

    About to switch, need partitioning help!

    It's fairly easy - / (root) - 10GB (more than enough) /home - 25GB /data - rest (use this for storage, or if you want to use /home for storage you can skip this data partition, i just find it handier this way) swap - 256MB should be enough.

    anybody has gone from vista back to xp?

    This is exactly why I am stepping away from Windows OS'es. In linux, YOU (the user) are in control of everything. That is how an Operating System should be. You can bend the OS exactly to how you want it, and no 2 linux installations will be the same. Not to mention the genious root user...

    I have went back on both of my computers as well. Even running linux, because I tried it, and loved it.

    Interested in trying out Linux. What to go with?

    When you boot from the CD instead of selecting the first option to start and install ubuntu, press F6. there, go to the end of the line, and change "splash" into "nosplash".

    Interested in trying out Linux. What to go with?

    I would recommend you start out with ubuntu to become familiar with Linux in general, and then give Arch a spin. Best and fastest user-centric distro out there imo, but much harder to set up for a linux newbie than Ubuntu.

    What Linux can do to take over the world

    I was scared of the command line at first as well. It took me only 2 weeks to realise that it was such a powerful tool, much better than any GUI. Right now, I almost solely run commandline based apps.

    OpenSUSE or something else???

    Totally agreed - ever since I installed linux five weeks ago I can't imagine what I have missed all those years using windows - I have not looked back and I will never ever look back now. Linux is where it's at.

    Nice to see more people making the switch. You should install the latest 115 version of the adobe flash plugin for it to work properly (not the one from the repo's).

    Ripping CDs in Linux

    in any case, to install them, try sudo apt-get install k3b or abcde, whichever you will want to try out. That should automatically install dependencies as well.
