I have SuSE 9.1 personal and it was okay. I was thinking of making a distro off of a distro. SuSE is to advanced I think in my opinion (for a noob). I also have Knoppix 3.6 live cd. That distro seemed pretty good, just some package uninstalling and installing, name and logo changing and write it to CDs and hand it out for free at my school w/ some manule on how how to get use to the KDE interace. Knoppix still didn't look a lot like windows, and XPDE is still a very buggy WM, so then I was just looking around on the net and stumbled upon Xandros 3 OCE. It looked even similar to windows. It even comes with some of the packages that I was going to include w/ my knoppix based one. (like firefox, thunderbird, etc) I like openoffice 2.0 beta more than 1.x. It looks more like MS word and has some bug fixes. So I have to wait till the non-beta virsion comes out.
If I can get this out soon for free or very cheap fee, soon, they could use it and share it with their parents, friends, and also since it will be free/cheap, little income families or poor people or etc. can use this and not pay ~$100 for Windows. And when the kids grow up (using linux) they can make there kids use it and so on. I've seen MS longhorn and it looks so chunky. When you save or open documents, it looks as if your are running internet explorer with big icons. It also has that useless bar thing on the side of the screen.
The more people want to buy linux since windows is getting worse, the more linux programers etc would make better virsions of linux and would be more compatible with devices and hardware.
