You guys are the best! I'm still confused as to what might be the best (the term "Distro" seems like it may be extinct) kind of Linux to use. Way back in days of olde Gnome presented you with one very dull colored box with no clue what to do with it. I think I figured out three basic things to do with that drab, ugly box. But I didn't understand WHAT I was doing, so I thankfully found KDE. I too am uneasy about the Plasma 5 "improvement," I don't like it out of pure reflex. I never used the Debian package retrieval system. Is a brand of Linux with this feature (not Debian itself) a real plus? Debian has set to work improving their security, I like this a lot. Security may be a non-existent dream in all of personal computing, yet Linux sure seems to do it far better than really more popular OS's. For an unknown reason Wal-Mart refuses my very worthy credit cards, buttheads. Let me Amazon up a small handful of Flash Drives. Way back when I always bought a Linux flavor on CD-ROMs, I wanted to support the people working their rears off on it. Seriously thinking about building a standard architecture brand new box for Linux. I want to have SSD exclusively, how large a capacity is required for serious (more than one brand of) Linux. Please? You are all fantastic help, thank you very much! ThundrRd, I'm far, far, far less knowledgeable than I need to be to have a Topic of my own. Seiously!
