Hi, I am totally new to Linux operating systems, but looking into switching from Windows to a Linux OS on my laptop. I have a Dell Studio 1536 with Dual Core AMD, Turion 2.6 Ghz processor. It has 4 GB of RAM and runs ATI Radeon HD (160 MB) My hard drive size is 500 GB. I currently run Vista Home edition operating system and debating between Linux and upgrading to Windows 7. What would be the best Linux OS...is there a laptop-specific OS? Also, on the little research I've done, I read some things about not being able to switch over all the music some people have had into the Linux OS. That is a big concern for me, because I am a music junkie have at least 100 GBs of music on my hard drive. My music comes from discs, iTunes and other downloads. Is there a chance I could lose some of my music files if I switch to a Linux OS? Thanks, in advance, for any help.
