Mandriva? Okay, that makes sense. I thought it was the same one.

See if Linspire is still available too. I know that one is also meant to be very
easy for people wanting to switch from Windows.

Hi Guys
 
Hi Guys
Thanks for all the input, sorry I was not able to respond before now.
I put the Debian System on His machine and he was having kittens, he thought I was harming it :confused: , He kept saying you can get it back? :eek:
even though he knows I've worked with computers for years, anyway put the system on his comp, and made it dual boot, showed him how to start, either the Linux or Win system, then showed him how to install his programs.
Know what he said?, have you lost all my stuff.
That was it :mad:
Took off the Linux system, and restored his computer, exactly the way it was, an told him in no uncertain terms to......................................
Then told him, never to come to me again
This Guy is so scared his computer will be broken :confused:

It's probably best if you just download some Live-CD like Knoppix and give it to people that are or might be interested. That way they don't have to install anything and it can also useful for repairing. I believe have *you* to come to Unix in order to appreciate it. You can't and shouldn't even try to force people to use it because then they won't accept *any* differences and if there's *any* problem they'll blame you and Unix forgetting the numerous terrible flaws of Windows.

If one want a support for newest HW and SW ( https://www.slant.co/topics/9853/~li...-a-new-machine ) , i think maybe Manjaro and latest rolling Debian release. Ubuntu may be more user friendly though.

These 3 distributions have alot of SW in their repositories also.
If one need mainly noob friendly distro, maybe try Mint.
One who want to migrate to Linux should be prepared to spend time researching and tweaking things. And as always do backup (ideally whole drive) before migration and regularly after it.
