I just got new laptop at work. What would you recommend as a linux distribution for it?
All other developers are working under windows, and use windows tools. I'm currently using ArchLinux, but want to change it.
I don't want to waste time configuring wireless, windows network shares, network pritners, projector, etc ... I want this stuff to just work, while still having sane and stable development evironment and tools.
Is Ubuntu a good choice for this? I use gentoo at home, but don't think it is a good match for work environmet.
EDIT: Note that we are working on cross platform apps, and deployment platform is almost always linux. There are very few windows apps that I have to use (like MS Project). It is just that everything else is windows centric.
I use linux because I feel more productive with it, even if I have to dual boot to edit MS Project files.
