I'm inexperient in both Linux and coLinux. I installed coLinux using the Gentoo image, thinking that I can choose the packages I really need and hence reduce the space required (I'm using an office machine, which has very limited hdd space). However, I read on some wiki page that Gentoo will eventually require much more space than Debian (10GB compared with Debian's 2-3GB). Is it true?
By the way, I just require some developers' tools on Linux, for office applications, I'm quite comfortable with Windows' ones. Which distribution should I choose then? (including Mandrake, Fedora, etc.)
One more: I like KDE and hence dont want to install GNOME. If I use Debian image, is GNOME included by default. If it is, can I uninstall it?
Thank you very much!
