I am testing Win Xp 64-bit right now, and also am interested in trying out a Linux distro in 64-bit. Are they only server versions, or is there a desktop distro? If so, any suggestions?

Linuxiso.org says that gentoo is not easy, and I know OCC members have said that too. I have heard of fedora and suse, but which would be easier to learn to use. I am very new to linux.

I'd recommend using SUSE. I'm writing this from a new install of it right now, and it's decent. Their newest version (9.2) has 64-bit built in. It's a decent OS, and it needs some adjustment to use it - but then again, you didn't know everything about winblows when you started with it, didya?

 

I know that suse, mandrake, and gentoo all have "Live CD" versions (like Knoppix), but I haven't tried them. If you're not sure about the OS, you could always try that first.
