I would like to install Linux under VMWare and am looking for a distro I can use for programming.
Now, to be upfront - I'm a game programmer and am on a tight schedule. I've had bad experiences with RedHat and basically have to state that I'm not going to spend more than 2 or 3 hours getting this to work, plus the download time. If it doesn't install automatically, run the first time with all my hardware, and come with an integrated, modern, GUI ide with breakpoints, watches, and everything else I'm not going to use it.
So with that in mind is there which distro can do what I need?
