To me it was hard because I had spent so much time in the windows world ( almost 6 years at the time ) and grown accustom to having stuff done for me, in the linux world, its a lot more user involved, but the plus side is, once something works, it works and doesnt break.
where can i get it, how do i get it
Linux is basically the kernel or the brain, what you want to get is a distrobution ( commonly referred to as a distro ). There is a bunch of different distro's out there, redhat
, and the new unitedlinux
which is a conglomerate of some the older smaller distro's, and this is just a short list. There is other versions like WinLinux
which strive to give you Linux stablity with a windows style GUI and software compatiablity.
i see all this mess about it and im pretty much fed up with how much crap i put up with windows , i need something BETTER
I myself do not like RH8.0, I feel they have turned towards desktop WAY to much in that version, but to others, thats just what they would need. I would recommend RH8.0, or Mandrake for a beginner, and even WinLinux ( which I havent tried ) for use on your desktop computer.
