Well this weekend I got brave...I tried another distro. I was using Fedora Core 3 to start with, but I was having problems with my sound and Cedega/Point2Play for my games. I decided maybe Fedora Core 3 isn't for me after all...So I did some research on www.distrowatch.com
...and it seems Ubuntu has been in the top 3 for the past 1-3 months.
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary) is Alpha (beta). BUT WOW!!! I downloaded the LiveCD version first to make sure it was good enough, EVERYTHING worked on the LiveCD of Ubuntu Hoary. So I download the full install....best move I've made so far for Linux!! I haven't seen a crash or anything go wrong yet even though its still Beta.
Ubuntu is Debian based, and has the feel of Mandrake/Windows XP. Everything is well organized and easy to find! Nvidia drivers? They installed EASY with APT-GET. Cedega/Point2Play now works alot better! No more Error 21 like Fedora! No more fixing before I have to play!
For Linux Newbies, I would suggest Ubuntu if your having problems with Fedora Core 3. Even if you use Mandrake you should just try it.
