Question Linux Vs. Linux?


I've got Red Hat 7.2, I'm just wondering which version (Red Hat, SUSIE, Mandrake) is the best and why. I will be getting the downloadable versions.

I realise that they all would have pluses, but what would/did you choose and why.

Thanks


Painmaster.

please search the forums for information, rather than just asking the same question time and again, thanks.

Thanks for your help.

I did run a search first but nothing in-line with the question I was asking was coming up.

There are so many distros out there and comments on them that you'll probably recieve conflicting information on all of them anyhow. The best thing to do is to decide what you want to do in it, and what you want IT to do for you. That will at least narrow things down.

I've been looking through the distros forum, and have seen all the conflicting advice.

What I'm looking for is a simple to use package, but will allow me the advanced features when i get use to it.

Since Linux is A freely distributed Software would it actually matter which one is the easiest to install and use and Ultimately learn, then as you learn give you the advance features? If you decide the one you are using is not doing it for you any more it does not cost to get a different version
