That's not Vista's fault; it's probably your antivirus ^^

If you have Norton:
Settings->Virus and Spyware protection options->Spyware protection->Uncheck the "hack tools" box

In conclusion it seems like a DUal boot of Windows XP and Ubuntu is what you will want to try out. Unless you like another Linux distro more.

The new Ubuntu:

i put the cd in my computer and it gives you the option to install it along side windows without you having to partition etc

Well it still DOES partition just automatically. You dont have to do it ahead of time...

To answer the OP's question seriously, The best OS to install is the one you know how to use, Change and secure the best. To anyone who posted installing any version of linux for hacking is an idiot. It doesn't matter what OS you have, Windows,linux or mac the only thing that makes you a "hacker, programmer, web developer" is how good you are. I have XP pro (my version) on 3 boxes and have ubuntu 8.04 on another I do all my "work" on XP.

I may as well say what I said before again. Basically what korg said plus:

don't cut off anything you need. I just changed my main computer to XP for compatability reasons. It isn't fun when you are trying to get some work done, but end up troubleshooting because you arn't familiar with the OS.

k..

swap the hard drive you are trying to partition with your main hard drive (year take open the cover, switch em, set the jumpers). Boot from WinXp install disk. Delete all partitions on the HD in question. Recreate partions to max FAT32 partition size.

continue as if you where installing XP and at the screen that says

format fat 32 (quick)
format fat 32
format ntfs (quick)
format ntfs

Choose format FAT32

let the format complete... when windows starts installing (ie.. copying XXX to XXX) turn the computer off.

Restore the Hard drives back to their original state. Boot from the original OS hard drive. Now. in diskmanager you'll on the second disk you'll see a partion that is FAT32 and unused partion space. You will be able to format/partition the hardrive using XP from here...

Couldnt you use a live linux distro you may have lying around, then use fdisk/qtparted? I think they support pretty much every format under the sun.

You silly fuck.

The whole point of unix is compliancy, ideally to a posix standard.

I'm a unix geek, so I can find my way around on pretty much any unix.

I apply the same skills to my Linux, BSD, HP UX, SGI IRIX, Solaris (Both open and proprietry) and embedded systems every day.

Plus there's overlap, no reason you can't run for example, a GNU userland with a BSD kernel.

-------------------------

To the original poster:

Get linux, probably Mandriva, it's pretty noob friendly. I'm a big fan of debian for machines i just want to work, that I don't have to mess with, for my tinkering machines I run variations on debian, Gentoo and LFS.

Hit me up on irc if you need help (irc.psych0tik.net ssl 6697)

What is "BEST"?

There is not one "BEST" Operating System.

It is all user Dependant. If you like Windows use Windows. If you know Linux use it. BSD Ditto. You catch my drift.

As it has been said The best operating system is the one you are most proficient with.
