Quote: ...the current Red Hat/Fedora installer asks almost exactly the same questions as the Win 7 installer, aside from the "what kind of system is this?" drop-down that determines the default software mix. And they all have defaults that will give you a very usable system.
I thought someone might at least mention another simpler build. I'll check it out. My experience being almost strictly with Windows, and only seeing modern devices of the 'mobile' nature using other than NTFS, I didn't know whether Linux was different. At the very least, I thought Linux would default to something, and I didn't think I'd have to care really what it was.
