    Lately I've been messing with LFS(Linux From Scratch), but if I had to choose a distribution I'd go with Debian.. although I like anything other than Mandrake.

    debian also has no dependancy problems like rpms and is supposed to be even more stable. but I think that's about it.

    I loaded Mandrake 9.0 in this week and have it running fairly well, just got the Documentation today, I don't know enough to say I like one better as this is my first distibution. Getting used to new terms seems half the fun and half the battle. :)

    Since my last post I have used Mandrake a little more and I still have a steep learning curve. I did download RedHat 8.0, Lycoris, and GenToo. I will look more seriously at the Linux learning in the coming weeks, but I can see that it is the future! :)

    Mandrake 8.2, wont go near 9.0, its too 'new', an seems a bit of an issue pit. Maybe 9.2'll be better - 9.1 should be a nice halfway point.

    Fact is I've got so used to 8.2 and invested a fair amount of time upgrading it and getting it really stable, so I'd be pretty loath to throw that effort away for no really massive gains. :cool:

    my first real linux machine was mandrake 7.0, but they seem to get better and better in each distro. i'm currently running 9.0 with no problems on my server that i'm allowed to run at work. :) i've tried some of the others but keep going back to mandrake not necessarily because of ease of use, but because i've had great support from them. over the last couple years i prefer to do most things command line like most linux gurus, so usually i will do a simple install and install everything by hand. plus, the fact it is redhat compatible makes it a good alternative to redhat. the only bad thing right now is that they keep begging for money. other than that... i would like to give suse a try, but they don't seem to want to let you download a "download" version of their os to try. all they give you is a trial download which i do not like. anyone know where i could download the isos for the newest release of suse that isn't a trial? i think this is the only one i haven't tried of the linux distros because of the trial thing. thanks for any posts anyone may have! :D
