OK -  for those of us who are thinking of getting away from the 4 gig 
RAM limit of win32, what flavour of Linux would be good for running 
Scribus, Gimp and Inkscape ?  (And maybe at some point building Scribus.)

Do we need to go to 64 bits to use more than 4 gig ?

Oddly enough we've recently set up the latest 64 bit kubuntu on a quad 
core AMD chip.

It's not been without its vices but it's OK for its intended role.

I was thinking of setting up a nice linux desktop system with at least 
two monster screens, 1920 by 1200 or something. Are any Linuxes 
particularly friendly towards multiple screens ?
