Hello, folks.

So, I have one problem. I think you can help me.

Windows. I use it because:

- videoediting: I like to edit videos in Sony Vegas, AAE e t.c;
- education: in our university it's important to work with programs for text correcton in Windows NT systems;
- I'm scary: I've never used .nix systems before.

Nowadays I use netbook (Acer AOD257) and (I'm not so crazy) I forget about motion desigh. I wait Alienware's mini PC in Russia.  

One boy told me that Windows 7 iz da best for Acer.

He's liar.


It works awfull and Aceer AOD doesn't have drivers for WinXP. So, I decided to try Ubuntu or smth like this. We all like CC and free legal music. And free legal Linux too, huh?  :-)

Can you reccomend me a good system for this netbook? And what's about programs for music? For example, does Ubuntu have good alternatives for JetAudio and TagScanner?

So, I wait your replies. Let's strat!

How about LibreOffice?

Ubuntu is very easy to install and user friendly. Give the new 12.04 live cd a try to see what you think.

Not sure on this one, but perhaps someone else can suggest an alternative.

I've been happy with Rhythmbox and EasyTag.

Panda, I installed "Ubuntu Studio". Excellent!

About LibreOffice: I used it on Windows too, but I still use MS Office from Wine. Unfortunately, It's very important. Book publishers doesn't like LibreOffice format.

About editing: so, as I wrote, nowadays I don't make any special videos. It's only netbook in my hands, hehe. But I gonna try OpenShot & Kino.   :-)

About music: In my opinion, Audacious (check it out from repository) works better and faster. EasyTag is nice, took it, big thanks.  :-)


By the way, what's about P2P? Is standard software good for it or smth like qBittorrent is better?

qBittorrent, Deluge and Transmission are all good choices. Personally I prefer Transmission for the minimal UI.
