I like it a lot. I really like the look and feel of KDE4 but felt that it was somewhat barebones as standard in suse, so I added factory repo's for KDE4.1. KDE4.1 has been doing pretty well for me and adds some more functionality IMO. It's pretty stable but not near as stable as my old suse 10.3 with KDE3.5, but I have been able to get compiz-fusion running without any major problems. Sometimes when I start eclipse or java based applications it will cause the compiz effects to 'shadow' but it goes back to normal after you shut the program down. How do you like it?

I like it a lot. one of the issues that I had was that if I was using Amarok I wasn't able to open a video on Kaffeine or see a video on youtube so I downloaded BANSHEE and that pretty much solved my problem. I tried using Amarok again this past weekend and I didn't have that problem anymore so I guess one of the updates fixed the issue.
I just love it! I try convincing my friends to download it and replace Windows but I guess they are afraid of the change and learning a whole new OS

I've been using Linux on and off now for about 4-5 years. I just graduated college a few months ago with a degree in Computer Science. We did a lot of our software work in Linux so that's kinda how I got into it. All through college I only ran it in virtual machines so I could do my Computer Science work. I only had one computer and I didn't 'have' to have windows for school but it made things a lot easier and quicker (and also Windows Media center is pretty darn good), so I stuck with it. Now that I'm graduated, have a job where I do some Linux development, and had enough money to own more than one computer, I installed SUSE directly on my home server. At home, I built a brand new system and slapped vista ultimate on it with 2 tv tuner cards hooked to a 40in tv so I get free DVR. The computer I spend the most time on however is SUSE 11.0.

lol.. I started using SuSE 9.0 in 2005. I installed it on my laptop and played around with it a few times but never had the time or the conviction to leave Bill Gates until last year when I installed SuSE 10.3 and I just loved it! so I still have a dual boot system at home but I barely use Windows. I have to use Windows at work for some programs and applications that only run in windows (eventho I was able to use WINE for most of them) but I couldn't switch completely.

I had 10.3 for awhile, I kind of miss KDE 3.5 (I know I can get it in SUSE 11, but I want to get used to KDE 4 since it's the future and all). In KDE3.5, I knew where everything was, how to configure it, and KDE 3.5 seemed faster in response time to me than KDE4 is. I do appreciate the new ideas and concepts of KDE4 though, and will definitely stick with it. What's your take on it?

I used KDE 4 for only 2 days then I went back to 3.5. I like 3.5 better plus is a bit faster but I know they will fix KDE 4 so it would work better. just still waiting for 'that' release. I also use Gnome but it is to graphic and fancy for me. I'm not a graphic maniac type of guy. Was it hard for you to learn linux commands? Also, what kind of Linux books have you read? any Linux cert?

One of the classes I took in College was called 'Intro to Systems Programming'. The entire class was based around Linux and we learned shell(command line) programming, C programming, and perl programming. This helped me learn it a lot since I had a teacher who was there to help and I didn't find it too hard. However, I am still not completely competent at the command line (I find myself in the man pages quite a bit lol)

As far as books go, I tend to like the Linux 'unleashed' series books from SAMS publishing; I have both openSUSE and RHEL versions. They are really nice and have step by step guides through just about any system administration task you need to do.

I don't have any certs, but I would like to get Red Hat or SUSE certified at some point. Since I develop software at my work, they would rather me take training on software programming instead of system administration. Maybe someday I'll be able to get them to let me get certified, because I don't want to pay for it; its pretty expensive. lol. You?

That's what the man pages are there for, it would be fruitless to try to remember all the options for every command.

I like the Open Suse bible book... I'm actually reading it but it is kind of hard to read when you have a full time job but I'm trying! I would like to get the Comptia Linux+ but I heard it is pretty simple and outdated so I was thinking about the RH certification or the LPI 1, 2 and 3. we will see.
