Like I said I did try ubuntu it was amazing to install but installing drivers was a nightmare. How do you install drivers on linux? Is it nice and simple like windows just click exe or is it a pain in the ass?
Typically in Linux you do not install drivers; they are part of the kernel, so you already have them. Exceptions include proprietary video drivers; AMD catalyst is already installed in linuxcoin, and its the version you want for mining. Nothing extra needed. Ubuntu comes with opensource drivers, and for mining you need proprietary ones, which you install with the "Additional Driver" application and it takes like 2 clicks. Do not use the newest versions of ubuntu though, since they come with more recent AMD drivers which are crappy for mining. In fact, do not use ubuntu for mining. You can run ubuntu from a stick, but only with the open drivers. To run ubuntu with the proprietary drivers from a stick is possible, but not so easy to achieve.
