    I need help with Linux

    Of the many many diffrent versions there are I need one with the following features:

    -CD Live, or an install not overwriting my current windows
    -Nice Theme
    -Fast, I hear there are some the can run on as low as 30mb Ram
    -Good for development, unlike vista
    -Is compatible with windows applications, or compatible with WINE
    -Free
    -Is constantly updated or not forgotten
    -Total size below 2GB

    *edit*

    -Has some sort of manual, or guid on how to setup.

    could someone at least tell me the most used version with CD Live, and a nice theme. If not one that installs not overwriting my previous windows.

    P.S Sorry i thought I pressed the edit button XD!

    Probably should use Suse. I think it has an option to install and not overwrite existing os.

    Used it before... i hate linux.

    Ubuntu is great. Live CD, you can get a new theme, the default is rather generic, good for development, and all that.
