I am new to Linux, though I have been using it for about a year. I just installed 10.4 on the second hard drive of my dual-boot system, and I love it!
The issues that kept me from getting involved heavily with this OS have been resolved with this release: difficulty hooking up to wireless. 10.4 found but my PCI card and my wireless adapter and I was immediately online. I know there's a way to configure wireless on other distros, but the command line language is still a little daunting.
Anyway, I love the endless array of apps and the fact that everything seems to work! The only thing I had to do was configure my HP 1200 printer.
I am looking forward to many more challenges and learning this OS.
