Did you all face a problem in choosing the suitable distro ?

Posted 10-11-2006 at 12:37 AM by amsunaakage

I was wondering...... and maybe i am right.

The most difficult thing in starting as a newbie in linux is to choose the suitable distro for yourself.

When i ask people in forums about anything considering linux i never find them agree on something like when i ask " which is best windows xp or windows 3.11"?

The whole world will agree that Windows xp is better than Windows 3.11 due to reasons not(opinions) but scientific reasons.

Some people don't actually understand that everyone here uses their spare time and not actually paid. I have seen double posts around saying "HEY!!! nobody here knows nothing for this?Come on 19 reads people, DO something! Help me plix plox!"

What can you think of that person that is posting this and are you really going to give your time for him/her?

Maybe if someone wanted a 6hr call to repair support or 2hr response should make a contract with a company...

Yeah, we finally did it, 1.2.9 is here!

My sincere thanks to all who made this project and this release possible: the Rootkit Hunter project team, all contributors and testers, all RKH users, those who kept nagging us for a release,, Sourceforge for unfaltering support and Michael Boelen for providing RKH and relinquishing control.
