I'm new here.
I need for a
Linux Distribution for my girlfriend, to install on her computer (in a
VM, to be more exactly).
She studies Graphic Design, and she use to work on
Windows XP, but she got problems with License and other stuffs (also, her machine is a little older), so a proffesor on her University recommended her to work on Linux.
I do some research and I found
Ubuntu Lucid Lynx here, and it looks like it will work for her.
I've seen the tools that the distro has, but I don't know how useful are. She works a lot with
Illustrator as far as I know, but she could use some other tools..
The question is, is this the best choice for an SO oriented to graphic Design?
Better a newest version, or an older ? What other tools she can get on this distro ?
Are another option better?
Also, about the requerimients, she has a Pentium IV and 2 GB RAM (a little older). I don't remember how much free space disk she has.. Is this a recommended version, or a newest will work better ?
