Okay, I've got a couple questions.
ONE- What is your favorite Linux to use? I'm looking for something a little more than Ubuntu.
TWO- What is the linux that looks and works best like a mac?
THREE- If I get rid of one distro, could I still back up everything easy and use it on the other distro?
My main use of linux involves video/music/graphic editing and I like to use a good music player.
Basically any distro that's good and could read my printer (^.^).
maybe some distro that I could run some windows programs on, like ubuntu and WINE (not sure if WINE is only for Ubuntu...)
I have Ubuntu, and want something more.
Erm... I'd think Ubuntu is your best bet. Especially with printers.
I know,but my printer doesn't work, nor my mp3 player. Plus, I want a better, stronger distro.

so... anyone know anything.
the whole mac thing isn't too important.
but i'd like something more
i'm using xubuntu but if you really want lots of software and strength fedora is the way to go (but be warned it's not as simple)
also www.microsuck.com has a nice list of other operating systems on the side of their homepage
REad my guide it has all the major disto out there
But my vote goes to Sabayon...
It's the best all-around IMO-- easy enough to use (it has an easy-to-use package manager called "yum" which you can use to install lots of common and fairly-uncommon software, plus you can use it to automatically update all of that software.. even updating your kernel and whatnot automatically). Even though it's easy to use, it's not particularly geared at new users like Ubuntu.
It used to be known as Red Hat Linux, and it's (still) one of the most popular distributions for personal desktop use.
Personally my favourite is OpenSUSE.
I find it the most productive.
But I've heard Mandriva is good.
3. You could always make a separate home partition http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome
