http://navynos.linux.pl/index.php?id_article=17

and i would like to know what distribution of linux he is using, if it is possible to tell. Also, do all linuxs' come with that window to the left, It displays your computer stats etc.

he's using his own brand of linux: navynos. If your wanting an easy linux distro i would suggest something like suse or fedora But if you what to learn linux i would suggest slackware, It isn't as hard as its made out to be to install Slackware. I'm planning on switching to it. There really isn't a distro for hacking except phlack and navyos but i'd suggest slackware. The stats bar on the side are addons, I suggest that you use kde and to get them bars you should use an addon called superkaramba.

this is a pic of my suse box running kde w/ superkaramba to show the stats panels at the side:

see with windows, you get the windows desktop and thats it, But, with linux you can choose. The one in my picture the desktop is kde. In the navyos the desktop is fluxbox.

these are some of the different types of Desktop environments:
kde: http://linux-blog. . .efault.jpg
gnome: http://www.thejem. . .efault.png
XFce:http://www.tuxmac. . .l/xfce.jpg
windowmaker:http://www.netbsd. . .wmaker.png
fluxbox: http://www.plig.o. . .-input.png

there are loads so just google them. You should use kde. kde is the most common and user-friendly, most distros should have it as the default one.

well you should look around first, slackware might not be the greatest choice if you new to linux. browse google and find one that you like. also you should try knoppix first. Its a live cd so it doesn't need to be installed, you just put it in the cd drive and restart. I would suggest you use a second hard-drive for linux so you dont bugger windows or vica versa.
