Ok, so since I realised that my Pi would take ages to get shipped I didn't really follow the forums as much as I did and now I have come back on and I'm completely confused.
1. What is the BEST (easiest to install, better to run, just plain good) Linux to run on the Pi?
2. If I have a Laptop with Windows 7 on it and it has an HDMI port, can I plug the Pi in and run Pi on the Laptop and THEN turn it off and go back to Windows 7 with all my stuff on it?
3. If I want to put Quake or something on the Pi, do I just download the .zip --> extract it ---> drag onto SD card ---> then play it?
I know these are stupid questions but I hope you people can help, cheers.
