I'm planning on installing linux on my hard drive, having never done it before, and was doing a bit of research and found out there seems to be tons of different distributions of it! As one without so much knowledge of such things, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what would be a good one to install. I'm going to be doing astrophysics/astronomy in the not so distant future perhaps there's one that's geared more towards that field? Like is it better to go with something like Scientific Linux or redhat or ubuntu? Thanks much.
