Question: What will I need to prepare to make this happen? Will this thing be anywhere near as nice as it was with Vista? Can I run windows apps within it? Is there any decent music production software that I can run (I am a musician)? I have an HP DV6 series laptop (known for overheating). The pre-installed hard drive burnt out after the first few months of owning it, and the restore set won't restore on the new drive. Instead of just calling HP or Best Buy and having this situation corrected, I am going to wait a month or so for more computers to come with Windows 7 pre-installed and break the laptop in some elaborate imaginary accident (love that warranty) so I can just get something new. In the meantime, I have a fairly decent machine to try out linux on and I would like to give it a shot. Ubuntu was suggested to me, so this is the one I want to try, but I want to see what is offered to cater to my hobbies... I may not want to switch back to windows. jorgestudios- Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit edition running on a 64 bit processor is not a good thing. For the record- I'm not planning on using windows on this machine. I have other computers I can do that with- I just want to make sure I can use it for the same things I used windows for. And what's with the downthumbs? Aside of jorgestudios, I can't see one reason to thumb anyone down, and even his answer isn't all that bad.
