Question Which Linux OS is better?


I am having a tough time figuring out which OS is better in performence between Mandrake 8.1, SUSE, or Red Hat 7.2. Yesterday I went to Best Buy and found all three OS but Red Hat costed around $90, SUSE costed around $69, and Mandrake costed $39, but Red Hat had a bigger box than both of them and SUSE had the second biggest box while Mandrake was the smallest and had 7 CDs and I thnink SUSE had the most CDs. So that made me think since Red Hat costed the most then it had to be better right????? Can someone tell me wich one is better in performence, for example which one has the better programs and which one would be chosen for making your own software or program. One that is used by many companies, that way I know that it is the best because more companies have chosen it. PLease someone tell me!?

please use just one thread... it's really annoying when people can't be bothered to keep their own threads alive

you know, you don't have to buy Linux, you can download it for free and download most of those packages too for free that come on those cd's. don't judge linux by the size of the box it comes in or how many cd's it has. do you really think your going to ever use more than 2 or 3 cd's worth of software ??

just a thought to give you...
