The best distro for is bodhilinux, its definitely smaller than the rest of the full operating system. The best software in linux i could consider is inkscape. Definitely worth to learn especially if you like crating banners and logos for websites.
I'm looking for a Linux Distro, or two, to be able to accomplish two separate tasks. One to act as sort of a firewall, or one for networking in general, and the second task is to use on my home workstation for Graphics... I like to use Blender on my computer, I use Windows, but I want a good change of environment. I've used Ubuntu on and off for years, but this new Unity interface just blows... Any Ideas?
If you want to use Ubuntu, but don't like Unity, just download and install Ubuntu with one of the other DEs, like xubuntu or Lubuntu to get Xcfe or LMDE, respectfully. If you already have Ubuntu with Unity, you can install another desktop along side Unity.
Blender should be available in all of the major distro's repositories.
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
Also, any major distro should handle the firewall part. What components are going to be involved?
Also, how are you planning to hook this up? Cable modem --> Firewall computer --> wireless router or something like that?
I'm going to assume you're asking for the best Linux programs.
IMO Chrome is the best browser, Thunderbird is the best email client, and I like Rhythmbox for music. OpenShot has got to be the best for video editing.
