so getting ready to give The Russian his guts (he was originally the Dragon but as a all purpose family pc he's not that powerful and people kept expecting the Dragon to be powerful...however my family all have Russian and Brazilian blood soo......)

Since the Russian will mainly be running Firefox, doing word documents, and other normal tasks of the home, (the only one who games is me so i can easily just set a separate partition for windows if i need to)

I was thinking, maybe The Russian could be a 'nix box...it would save me a hundred bucks to get a Vista CD and get they Russian up and running that much faster.

Thoughts?

You're in luck because just about any *nix distro can handle Firefox, word documents, other normal task and much more. There's no reason to spend money on Vista.

Start downloading and burning the ISOs. Give a few a try and decide which you like more.
