I have an old AMD XP 1800 OC'ed to 1.8 Ghz that I still use for playing all of my media in my living room. I have gone through about 20 ditros of linux (through VMWare) and found that Ubuntu, Linux Mint (which I always call Lint Minux, I can't read
), and Fedora are my favs. I like Ubuntu because I can install it via tftpd32 on another XP based computer, Mint because it's like Ubuntu but cleaner and comes with more of what I want out of the box, and Fedora because it has some interesting ways of navigating the desktops.
I am still pretty new to Linux. Rather, I have been playing around with it since my mom got me a version of Red Hat in 1998 or 2000, but I never got very far with it. Ok so here is my question: would Mint be a good option for me to use a a media solution? I need to be able to remote to it, and have S-Video output support for my Radeon 9600 XT. I have a similar card in my laptop and I couldn't get the S-Video out to work. Thanks in advance.
