Which Linux distribution did you switch to when RH when it went "Fedora"? And what is the reason for your choosing that distribution?

I have not made a formal move in the sense that I still run my RH 8 and 9 but I have gotten myself Mandrake 9.2 and will be changing to that soon.

It is a tough call between Slack and mandrake and I chose Mandrake 'cause I cud lay my hands on to it. But I will install Slack as soon as I get it, along with my other Linux distros.

Fedora, of course!!

up2date can use apt-get and yum repos to keep my system up to date, I can yum install <package> and all dependencies are taken care of, it looks great, runs great, and I haven't had a bug or crash yet.

I noticed that it is not an option. Why not?!?

well I cut my penguin teeth on rh starting about two years ago but was actually trying to break with them for a while... Mandrake was nice but SuSE is just a little better. YaST2 "install software" uses rpms but resolves dependencies very well, kind of like urpmi in Mandrake.

Still running RH9. No need to switch yet. Use apt to keep updated. Will try a couple other distros until I find one to use and learn for awhile.
