Thumbs up Hello, Let me introduce myself.


Hiya,

I currently use Ubuntu Linux since March of 2007. I'm now wanting to branch out a little bit. I've used Puppy Linux on an old compaq that had windows 98 on it (it had usb drives but would not recognize flash drives without upgrading). I used the live Cd of puppy linux and was quite impressed how easy it was to mount and access the hard drive and Flash drive I was able to transfer the needed files no problem. With that positive experience I now want to have a taste of some other distros that are out there. I keep an eye on distrowatch.com and read up on reviews
here and there.

I would suggest that you try Mandriva Linux. I have tried Ubuntu recently, it was good, but I still like mandriva better, even using the gnome desktop. I would definitely suggest checking it out!

If you want to learn Linux I encourage you to use a distro less "user-friendly", like Gentoo ( Gentoo Linux has a lot of documentation ), Slackware, Arch...

I used Mandriva to learn on, it is all based on whether you want to learn it or not, rather then which distro you use. All the distros are good, BUT you want something that is easy to use at first so you can work your way into a competent linux user, rather then getting frustrated at every step!
