Many people don't like the new nity interfaced that was first introduced in Ubuntu 11.04 but luckily, many other linux distro are based on ubuntu so instead of going back to either 10.10 or 10.04, I suggest you take a look at elementary OS (www.elementaryos.org), linux mint (www.linuxmint.com), lubuntu (www.lubuntu.net) or xubuntu (www.xubuntu.org). All these are operating system built on ubuntu so you will be familiar with how it all works but you won't have to deal with the Unty interface you don't like from Ubuntu 11.10.
Well, Linux used to pride itself for being able to run on almost any machine. Ubuntu has become bloated over the years, but more user friendly. You may want to try an older distro like Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support): http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ You will want the PC (Intel x86) desktop CD version ubuntu-8.04.4-desktop-i386.iso
the most popular distros at the moment are Linux S.U.S.E 11.3 and Ubuntu 10.10 and its variants,both configure wireless with death defying precision there are many other distros coming online which also have good connectivity,you can even run linux successfully on pc's that fail on a windows load
You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.
THERE ARE 2- VERY GOOD WAYS, LINUX IS FREE SO YOU CAN GO TO THERE WEBSITE AND BURN ANY OF THERE DISTROS ON A DISC-OR-DVD, OR YOU CAN ALSO GET THE DISCS MAILED DIRECTLY TO YOU THROUGH THE SAME SITE FOR ANY DISTRO YOU WANT. UBUNTU HAS ITS OWN SITE AND THEY HAVE LINKS THERE WHERE YOU CAN GET THE DISCS ALREADY DONE.. HAVE FUN WITH THE PENGUINS, JON T...
Linux XP has had several reports of problems with activation. Your best bet would be to contact their technical support. Or switch to one of the completely FREE Linux distros. Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint linux, Dream Linux, Mandriva, Knoppix. Are just a few that offer the same simple install interface and hardware support.
Linux XP is a free linux distro that charges you for pre-installing applications like "Wine" that run windows based apps. Wine itself is also free and can be installed on any linux distro.
