o/s replacement...


i'm just curious, but is there any linux distro that you people out there that could possibly replace the windows o/s and mac......i don't mean in the long run, just now....eg. programs, ease of use etc. etc. To make things simpler do you think there is a distro that maybe kids could even use....without all that console stuff.....just a gui???

Oh and if you are really looking for one for your kids, you could just find a GUI (like ROK-I think that's what it's called) and strap it into any flavor of Linux. And you could be the "system admin" guy. That would be 1 way to at least monitor your kids computer use.

ha ha ha ha, Mickey! Yeah, but even Mandy has some command line. From what I have been reading about SuSe, it's all about the GUI.

Oh,you still need the CLI with SuSE-been using it since 7.1 and to do anything as root you'll want it.Kids dont need it,though.
