  1. It is integrated now. I checked out puppy and it looks nice. Light and would be great on a few of my computers. I also have heard a lot about MINT lately. I few of my friends locally have mentioned it. BLAG wow never heard of it but check the site and looks clean and light. Even the site is straight to the point. Downloading BLAG CD image now gonna try it out. Good stuff thanks.

  2. Hey mrhan , knoppix has come a long way !

    I grabbed up a copy just last week, I was pleasantly surprised to say the least, especially with a live cd .

    That was actually my first experience with linux. Locked myself out of my computer Knoppix saved the day. Played around with others like DSL damn small linux. Ubuntu was surprisingly one of the most simple. Still takes some getting used to like Repositories, Installing programs, Using Wine etc. I remember when I started using Beryl with my OS I thought it was the coolest thing on the planet. I think it's Compiz now.

  3. From my experience Windows has caused me tons of problems in the past. I ended up having to learn about a lot of the OS and how to make it run faster, smoother and which virus software works best internal components. Went through a lot of trial and error. I can now say Windows works a lot better than before. I will say my mother bought a Mac not long ago and just stopped using her PC all together. A lot of friends have also switched to Mac and I have not heard any complaints. I myself like windows only cause I play certain games that require it. I use linux on another computer.

    My favorites would have to be Ubuntu or Knoppix.

  4. Ok. I see you don't have many options. But I researched and maybe looking into another provider might be a good idea. Here is what I found within 15 miles of your current provider.

    DM Broadband http://www.dmbroadband.com 507-645-7614

    Midwest Wireless  http://www.midwestwireless.com (507) 334-8728

    or www.bevcomm.net 

    You could also do Satelite.

    Check www.pcpitstop.com

    Clean up your computer if it needs it.
