depends on what you want from linux. If your new to linux and you want to use it just as an OS like windows then Redhat ain't for you, You'll want something like Suse. www.suse.com

Redhat is used mostly by coders and people who have been on linux a long time.

I personaly use Suse, it has a more graphial interface then redhat and is made for the common desktop. you can do codeing in it like you can on Redhat. It's just that Suse is built for the Gamer. It comes preloaded with lots of games, and *nix games will run on Suse, as long as there is a compile for it, or you can compile your own. Suse also come preloaded with several different codeing engines. So If your new to *nix then i sugest you go for Suse. tho if you just want a *nix codeing station, go with redhat.

I started with Mandrake, and it was a fairly good distribution for the Linux newbie i was. *grin* http://www.mandrakesoft.com/ You should look into it.

The best linux is Slackware because of the simple to use GUI. Easy as that. When I use linux, I don't want to be reminded of windows, I want to use something new and different.

What do you mean "legit" ....Linux is like...free.

O_o:: Are you saying there are copies out there just to thwart you. I don't think so.

I'm sure he means they are specifically released by Linux rather than some n00b hax0r on his 1337 b0x3n.
