    Hey Guys,

    Specs of the Desktop are below.

    Choosing the right operating system system is always an important step in getting your new PC.

    Personally, I recommend Fedora.

    XP Pro is a really good choice; I have it on all the computers at work and also at home. I recommend staying away from Vista, at least for the time being. It is a resource hog and doesn't have that much more "functionality" over XP pro/media center. In any case, I am also with Twey on using Fedora; but if this is just the factory OS that comes with the PC, I would choose XP Pro.

    Hope this helps.

    Fedora 7 is the best! YAY! No more "Core" just the straight up hat! WOOT!

    Fedora 8 looks impressive too though!
