Question: I'm an art photographer who uses computers for simple photo editing (as in Photoshop) as well as the regular stuff like e-mail, Internet and word processing. I also use computers to archive my entire music collection (mp3) and listen to it. I've just purchased my first laptop (a Sony Vaio) and would like to give Linux a try (as the only OS installed). I'm interested in encrypting the whole thing (with something like TrueCrypt). Generally I want to save resources by using a simple, straightforward OS with no silly bells and whistles such as the ridiculous Windows Vista graphics. I want to spend as little time as possible having to program stuff and as much time as possible getting the task done. The OS should be self-explanatory and user-friendly, but it should also give me some control over how my computer is run. Which Linux version do you recommend?
