But a lot of people rate RH as being their favorite (But also rate it as being kinda hard to learn when compared to Mandrake 9.0)
Is it really _that_ much harder to learn?
No, it's not any harder to learn, but not that much different either. IM-not-so-humble-O on this matter, Mandrake does everything RH does, plus. You are degressing (versus progressing) if you go from Mandy to RH. Everything RH has, Mandy does to, only Mandy does it better, and adds it's personalized tools to help if you decide to use em.
I really feel as if RH thinks it's all that and a box of chocolates simply because of it's name. It's not that special, it's not that hard, and it's not that good.
If you wanted to give it a try though, there are plenty of options out there. Check out parted to resize your drive and install RH along side Mandy to test it out and see if you like it better. To each their own, and as it's abundantly clear, I prefer Mandy
