(Tried to read n search as much as possible before opening this new topic, so hopefully not too many repetitions and won't give mods and admins too much work).
New to Linux. Very new. Why? after all never learned any programming nor was a huge genius in IT. Rather laziness I must admit now, yet still - no impressive background. I see computer rather as a simple tool - o.k., maybe more sophisticated, than a hammer, yet still a tool. Since Windows systems are... well... to put it least offensive way - making my life more difficult and turn basically any computer rather into an obstacle, than a tool - I got motivated. To spend some time, move my lazy ***, learn, do some work and make it work better. Again: since 'm new, don't have a clue about most of them things and would appreciate very much some advice. All major issues, I will try to sum 'em up below.
1) NOT interested in a ready version with all in it. Don't need a million programs, desktops, colorful features and what-have-yous. I w

Hi I am new and I need to know what would the right distro would be for my laptop? Also I hear the term "out of the box" a lot and was wondering if it means i have to order the disk or if I can actually download it from the site? Lastly I am gonna list what kind of laptop I have and it's specs and would like to know if any linux distros cause problems for my particular laptop in anyway ( like if anyone has dealt with this particular scenario before with someone else or has experience with the two ) ?
Here are my laptop specs:
An Acer Aspire 5610-2762
Intel Pentium dual-core processor T2080 ( 1.73 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache )
15.4" WXGA Acer CrystalBrite LCD (16ms) ( I don't think listing the screen size and what kind of monitor would matter but I threw it in there for the sake of completeness lol.)
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950
DVD-Super Multi double layer (support DVD+R Double layer/DVD+RW)

I like these useful distributions that have special purpose. I write some down below, do you have any tips about other useful distributions of this kind?

Hey I was wondering if I could install elementary os (elementaryos.org) in ubuntu 13.04? I LOVE the clean appearance better than anything else I've seen for linux. If you go to the website it's just an iso you can download, and I want to keep ubuntu

Elementary OS Luna upgraded!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2012
I've been using Luna daily build for sometime, so I knew what to expect, when Beta 1 was released, except the beautiful greeter and the default wallpaper.
Once, I downloaded and installed the Luna Beta 1, I did my usual thing--upgraded it to Raring direct from Precise, by passing the transit Quantal.
I installed Calibre, so I could read a book, while Apt did its work. I noticed that the Elementary devs were using their own ppa, so I didn't change that, before upgrade, so I have their Precise ppa applications, while the base became Raring. I also go rid of Plank, because it cannot intellihide and cannot be configured.
All applications work very smoothly.
I believe, the Elementary devs are somewhat afraid of their own creation, worrying a lot about bugs and delaying its release. Which "new final" release of any distro that's not buggy?!
I'll make a live CD out of my upgraded Luna and then change the Luna ppas to Raring, where applicable.

Would like to hear comments from other user who had tried this OS...

So, the first iteration of the Elementary OS, Jupiter, has officially been released. I love pretty much everything I've seen from Elementary from both an aesthetic and functional point of view. I'm genuinely curious and am downloading the torrent right now.
Have any of you guys and gals tried it out yet? What do you think?

I Just Created An Elementary OS Luna Based Linux Distro Called OvercastOS And I Would Like Your Opinion About It:
So What Do You Think?
BUT JUST 2 LET U KNOW, The Installer And Wireless Have Passwords. BUT UNFORTUNATELY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE! - BUT THERE IS GOOD NEWS! - YOU CAN STILL INSTALL IT! You Just Have To Choose INSTALL On The Boot Menu! AND THINGS WILL BE JUST FINE!
