Do anyone know where I can find a Linux version comparison? I really do like other peoples oppinions but I know that some peoples oppinions are at times based on how funny the comercials are, whether or not they are gettting any, the positions of the stars or the license plate number of the car that cut them off. I want a comparison chart of abilities popular versions of Linux, then I will like the "Pros vs. Cons" and them I don't mind to read the user Reviews.

I couldn't find a chart just a list of versions, I did though find out some usefull info and that is that some versions are best for begginers and others for "ME". I do actually have a bootable disk of Kanotix64 and I like the looks of it but cannot yet get the wireless working haven't tried the wire.

i got really great news

All of my post prior to this one was done with Windoze, this is with Kanotix 64. I had a thought after my last post to try the wire and volla! here I am. I really do have to get Digital Dolly to work so that I can clone my C: drive so that I can partition my drive for dual boot. I am going to graduate from the Live CD Kanotix 64 to hard drive booting. I do want to "XP" windoze, that is to eXcise the Phat. But gradually as I learn linux and there come more 64 bit drivers. Anyone know how to use Digital Dolly? Let me know. How do I get the wireless working with Kanotix 64?

Yes, it was really pleasant, and it came up with the same results I got from the research that I have been doing since my posting. I have used a Live cd of Kanotix for a short time and liked it but I am looking to SUSE or UBUNTU. MANDRIVIA is in the running also. Thank you for that. has a list and lots of info and links that are good too. What I am going to do is try each in a rotation til I eliminate down to the ONE.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
