I've been a Windows user for many years and I recently heard about Linux. It seems like an interesting product and I want to make the switch to it. I know there are several distros out there and I'm not sure which is the right for me. The basic uses for my computer is downloading, web browsing, and file storing. I'm not a gamer. I am quite familiar with the Window XP product but i dont mind learning something completely different, i'm not exactly looking for a "newby" product (unless its recommended). I am looking for a Linux product that is similar in preformance with my Windows XP, I'm not looking to downgrade. I would also like a sleek and stylish Linux product (XP is too boring for th sences).
Is there a Linux distro out there that suits my needs?? Can anyone guide me in the right path
