was it really necesary to make a new thread....you have people talking with you about the same topic in your other thread...and there is really no point in asking because of 3 things...these type of questions are spammed all over this board and a little search on this site would have gave you some insight on both distros, plus many others....secondly, there is a fourm on this site dedicated to distro specific discussion....and thirdly the most popular of all is
........................................
....................................

.
www.google.ca

and other then that, 9 times outta 10 mostly everyone tries numerous distros, so even if you get 15 responses in either one of your threads i will guaruntee you that in the not too distant future you will throw another distro on your machine to check it out....so just read up on both, and pick what you think.....

hi

if you are new to linux i would recommend redhat. if you like to experiment and want a simple linux setup go ahead with slackware.

good luck and post back on your choice
