I recently acquired an old Gateway laptop. I intend to install Linux on it to
1)play with opensource
2)have a secure VPN / proxy server to hit for when I travel.
Which Linux distro do you guys recommend? I'm capable of compiling things from source, although I would still prefer if said distro was being actively maintained and packages were simple to install. It'll probably be used as a headless server for the most part, but I wouldn't object to a nice WM.
