    General re: Which Linux to go for a beginner?

    I've been using Linux Mint 9 for 3 days. Its a nice experience, it is simple , user friendly and preloaded with most of the useful softwares, but I need to find drivers for my graphics card, bluetooth, wireless LAN,etc.
    And Does Linux not run the .exe format?

    ^^Nope, .exe is executable file for Windows.

    Though you can run it under Linux through Wine. But not all applications are supported.

    there are games for LINUX but good ones are really few. for the windows games,
    search for the game in the wine comatibility list

    can you run PS3 games on Xbox 360? can you run your Windows ".EXE" games on your Xbox 360? Nope.

    So, Linux won't run Windows executable files. Find native games for Linux like "Urban Terror" or stick to Windows for gaming. Use Linux for everything else. You can try using WINE for running Windows softwares/games.

    1) Bluetooth and Wireless LAN should work out-of-the-box.
    2) Which graphic card do you have?
    3) You won't be installing your Windows "drivers" in Linux. This is a completely different Operating System ffs.
