Anyone know the best and easiest way to install linux on my computer? I did loads of google searches but they all just confused me more so I've turned to UG

If you're confused, then you're only going to get more confused.

I'd suggest downloading an ISO of ubuntu, burning it on a disk and following the instructions from there.

Yeah, exactly what I was going to say.

$20??? I think I'll just go for the free download option.

I should definitely use ubuntu then?

If your having problems now, your going to have migraines later. If your really dedicated go download some live CDs. I suggest ubuntu or SimplyMepis.

all these kids in my school think they are elite hackers because they use linux. The ONLY advantage I see is performance if you have a ****ty computer, and it's free. But nobody pays for OSs anyways

dude, believe me I've got kids just like that at my school.

Thing is, I do have a ****ty computer, my desktop is broken so I'm using a 12 year old laptop. I need whatever I can get.

A bit off topic, but my friend has Linux on a CD, and I was wondering, is it easy to put it on the PS3? I heard you can, but have yet to look into it...

I did it on my old xbox and iPod, I don't see why a ps3 should be any harder, you probably wouldn't be able to use your friend's CD though, cause consoles can't usually read computer cds.

alright that makes sense, I would do the same thing. But yeah, Ubuntu seems like it's the standard among linux users.

another thing... since my computer is so lame, it has no CD writer... can I just extract the ISO to my hard drive or do I have to go write it to a CD on another computer then put it on this one?

Edit: In case you guys were wondering, the answer is no. I tried it

Regarding the PS3 installation --

PS3's dont use i386 architecture so you need to get a distro that supports the PS3's architecture. Yellow Dog Linux and Fedora support PS3's.
