    Yeah, I'm definitely going to build my own machine. I mainly want to use it as a media device for my TV. I was thinking Mint or Ubuntu, but I'm not exactly a stranger to Linux...I just haven't had a linux machine in like 8 or 10 years...haha

    Thanks for the help! :D

    Ah, yes. I built my machine from parts.

    My Linux is Arch Linux, and I'd really only recommend it if you've used Linux for a long time. It takes about an hour of pure CLI to set up, you know. :)

    Here's a screenfetch.

    If you wanted a Linux that's easier to use than Windows, go with Ubuntu. Or Linux Mint, preferably.

    If you want to be a cool guy, use Crunchbang.

    Or, if you want features from basically all of them, and you're up for a challenge, use Arch.

    For reference, here's a nice hierarchy of Linux. :)

    I saw on your blog you use Linux. I was just wondering what kind type of machine it is and what type of Linux you use. Just wondering cause I was thinking about building a computer and using Linux instead of windows.
