Which version to choose?
If you have a powerless desktop PC with 32bit processor, the version to be used is Roma, if you have a netbook with 32bit processor, the version to be used is Siena, otherwise if you have a desktop PC or laptop / notebook with a 64bit processor you can use Bergamo, Tropea, Mantova or Vieste.
What are the differences between the Bergamo/Mantova and Tropea/Vieste versions?
The differences are manifold but both systems are equipped with a worthy fleet of software and are therefore both ready for use. Just install the operating system to enjoy every pre-installed application.
Bergamo and Mantova versions use apt as a basic installer for the applications and have the synaptic package manager, however the packages used are in .rpm format, the system is a rolling release, so once installed it is possible to have infinite system updates except in the case there are substantial changes with the next release. Both are recommended for users who are somewhat familiar with linux.
Tropea, Siena and Vieste versions use apt as a basic application installer, but also synaptic and a visual application manager to choose other extra applications to install. Are based on Linux Mint so hardware recognition and configurations can be done with greater flexibility, therefore it is recommended for beginners or those who want to switch from proprietary systems to ours.
Theese five versions are out of the box, so after system installation you will have a system ready for use with applications already pre-installed and othhers taht can be installed with post-installer or tasks.
If you want to try the various versions before choosing which one to download and install you can do it on distrotest.net in live mode but without any network connection.
