My reply is NOT intended to upset anyone.

It's not my place to tell others what to want or use.

Just answer the question, which is PCLOS Big Daddy build by Alistair Izzard. 
Not perfect but I can get everything I need done. Video/audio editing, 
desktop publishing, internet, email and more. Very reliable, hasn't failed me 
yet. Thanks Ali.

If someone else wants to use something else, wonderful. I look forward the 
comparison and stories about it. Difference is wonderful.

Just answer the question, the why of this question belongs only to the one 

For the record....
1974 Chevy Nova Coupe Hatchback RS
Thinkpad T60 with a WD SSD
