What is the best distro?


i want a GUI that is not too difficult to use, like Slackware, but that has standard commands, unlike RedHat, so that i can learn all the generic commands. any suggestions? what are the pros and cons of each program?

thanks so much,

I would suggest my favourite, Gentoo. There is execellent guides to setting up a beautiful and up-to-date system. I'll recommend KDE or Fluxbox (again my personal favourites).

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.

This one is closed. orpheus, youve started 6 very similar threads. Please don't open new ones. Try to describe your problem in details in one of those already open and you've got a good chance to get an answer that satisfies you. Please not that 'which distro is best'-type question is very hard to answer.
