A question that was asked, was what he uses CorelDraw for.

In addition to illustrations and cover designs for books, he does A1 wall charts for his natural wellness presentations.

Inkscape would be great for that but it has a bit of a learning curve I find. It is well worth the effort though. It is available for windows too btw.

My 2c on the distro side is: Use Lubuntu on computers with less than 4GB of ram (otherwise unity especially for beginners<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt_hkSKQp6k>). Lubuntu is simple, works well, uses the least amount of memory of all the comprehensive window managers (so you can have some over for the browser :). You can try it out on your machine by installing the lubuntu-desktop package.
