Why I am afraid to use Linux (some help please)
First: can I find hardware drivers to download for linux ? And if so are they compatible with all the different distributions ? I mean is a driver the same for any linux distribution or does each distribution require a different driver ?
Same question for any software program. Can I just download a general program for any general linux and know it will work on anything, debian, red hat or whatever, or does each distribution require a different download ?
This is very confusing for me.
Also Are all the distributions binary compatible (for example all those for Intel 86) or are they all different binary programs ? What is the fundamental difference between the distributions ? Are they all completely different programs ?
Sorry and thanks for any help....
