Deciding on an OS
So I have my laptop that I'm currently on until I get my gaming pc back up and running. So my thing is I don't like Vista whatsoever, mainly because none of my periph's work on it so that is a hassle for doing school work. So here are the things I want to do with my laptop:
Get really good battery life (maximize it)
Music + Videos
Light video and photo editing (Sigs and Gaming Montages)
Maybe some light gaming.
thats about it. My two options are some version of linux, or windows pro/home. so what should I go with. I mainly am concerned with battery life
