Two weeks ago someone asked me if i could help him moving from Window$ boxes to Linux boxes on his office workstations ( they are around 10 ). Helping doing that is not a dificult thing but the problem is that I don't know what distro to use for that. On my home PC I use Slack ( in my point of view best destro ever). In the past i had experienced with RedHat (4 ,5, 6) wich nowdays I dislike it very much (because on that distros I hadn't been able to recompile my kernel
but those thing does't count now).
The distro must satisfy the folowing needs (in the order of their priorities):
1. EASY TO USE (graphical enviroment aka. KDE preferably)
2. Easy to configure (preferably hardware autodetection)
3. Easy to configure & use localization suport.
4. Easy to configure & use printer (my experience with these devices is outputed trough /dev/null
5. Installs ontop of windows $HIT (installs & runs with no-problem on a FAT32)
The last need (aka. FAT-thing) is not of shuch importance but it could help a lot.
One of my friends recomanded me to use Gentoo, but i was thinking of Fedora (but i heard that it has stability problems) or Mandrake.
Thnx, and excuse my English.
