Try going to distrowatch.com and looking for other rpm-based distros (like red hat and mandrake. You might want to check out fedora 1.0 even though it's basically red hat. You might like to use the search button too

Hmm....

If your name is right....you really don't care what I think. You want me to go somewhere.



I really don't think you'll be unhappy with Redhat 9, or Redhat Fedora either

If it must look most like Windows, go with Lycoris.

Try Debia, Slackware, or SuSe
Non rpm based
Rpm is sent from hell
Installing any package that has dependancies will probably take until aforementioned place freezes over. I remember the entire.. ohh.. this has 3 dependancies... this has 2... and the other has 4.... 4 hours later, Gentoo was compiling

www.lycoris.com

I think it costs money.

I have a version of Lycoris Desktop LX that I downloaded almost 9 months ago. If you like I can burn you a copy and mail it to you.

Let me know....
