I also have tried many linux distributions but i use xp. xp is easy to use. Linux needs many softwares which we need to download.

well its not that.... actually for me XP uses so many s/w to function properly.... like the player itself isn't nice... i had to install foobar2000 for music and VLC for videos... you must have used ubuntu... yeah that requires initial d/w of some addons!! the only disadvantage of linux is... that my net client functions with IE :P

hmm.... i'd say backtrack is the one ;) it has 24 audio codecs and similar no. of video codecs... it even comes with various tools like forensic tools and many more... plus it takes very low configurations

Well, I use XP but would use Linux if only there was sufficient drivers and if I could run all the applications I use. I like, the stability and reliability of Linux all the best urban

Well as I said it is more than a matter of configuration, Memorymap for example won't, I understand, run on Linux. all the best urban

if you talk about os security then linux is the best os ever made but its not user friendly as windows xp.

This is an old thought that linux is not user friendly. but I believe Ubuntu is very user friendly distribution. Its package manager installs almost every software for you with same ease as windows do. Its online community support is also tremendous.

i use windows, i have tried win 95, 98, 2000 Server too, but right now using xp. i never use linux, actually for once i tried to learn to operate it, but since it's still on console mode which we have to type the command for perform any action, so confused and lazy to memorize the script :P but lately i heard that Linux has been develop a lot so the layout become more user friendly. Maybe someday i'll switch to linux :D
