Question Which LINUX distribution i should prefer for my Project report ??


We have come to a problem that we have to develope a report on a network Operating system ... We prefer to use Linux. But now we are facing problem that which flavor should we use other that *RedHat and *Slackware. Also tell me how we categorize FreeBSD is it a Linux flavour or Unix. So which one is better FreeBSD, Debian or Mandrake which could also help us in future when we use it ...

FreeBSD is not Linux, it's BSD, very different. Some will get pissed off if you say "BSD is Linux" out loud.

Mandrake is cool for 1st timers. What exactly does the network project involve? Any modern OS has netowrk capabilities.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
