Which linux to use?


I have used mandrake for a bit but i am getting sick and tired that everytime i try and install something, i got a request for another development libary.

I am still rather n00b at linux and am running a dual-boot system, can anyone suggest a good linux disprution for me to use ( I have tried debian and it skipped many of my devices including my mouse!)

Thanks for the help in advance,

Beuy

This question has been asked and answered in detail elsewhere on the site - do a search for the subject or go to www.distrowatch.com and see the comparisons there.

for a n00b, I think either jamd or peanut. both very nice

but personally, all distros with xfree86-4 cause me hassle over refresh rates

Dude,,,,,,,,If you care about that huge quantity of free programs use mandrake .
If you care about devoloping and networking I think you should use redhat .
BOTH BETTER THAN EACH OTHER .
I k'now that I'm talking stupid maybe,,,,,, But they are very cool .
If you are fine with mandrake just stay using it .
If you don't have any lack of anything in redhat so do the same thing and stay using it .

I'm talking about those 2 distro because they are the leader these days as you can see .

Eventually you are not using "HELL WINDOW$ XPENSIVE"

Linux, The way you can control the world .
