I am thinking of switching my compuer to Linux…what is a good variant/release that you can recommend for stability and security?
I had an old release of Mandrake years ago…not bad but crashed a lot, full of security holes, bugs.

As well, I have WinXP pro installed..it it a pain to make a dual boot *absoultely without partitioning (don’t want to do this)*, or should I just get another machine?

My main uses: total security (total lock down with firewalls and encryption, paranoid tracking utilities) programming, word processing tools, and surfing.

THANKS SO MUCH
Also…I want something with no corporate OS hooks in it..so they can sneak around behind the scenes…Im weary of commercial variants, but again I am paranoid
