I would go for Ubuntu, but if you are experienced with Linux then try out Fedora. Both are good distro's, but Ubuntu is geared more toward netbooks.
Hope that helps,

I know them both well (Dad knows all this stuff) but is there a Fedora compiled YSFlight or will I have to E-mail Mr.Yamakawa to get the source to compile.

Many Thanks

It does not matter which version you use, the Linux version of YSF is compiled on Ubuntu, but it worked on SUSE (11.4). So both should be fine with YSF.

Yes but it is always best to run something in its native mode - eg: .deb or rpm for different versions of linux

Not really. It is best to compile it from source, and then use the binaries from that. The only problem with linux YS is that the console server version imports unnecessary libraries, and that it has port-binding errors. The client version should work fine though.

That will never happen (unless he makes it opensource).

Linux is a beautiful thing: dd saved my mac's hard drive.
