Re: madrake or redhat

They didn't blatently tell users this, it was just a comment from the CEO. Their replacement for desktop use is taken or is called Fedora now since the actual Redhat brand is only going to target the server market and or commercial businesses, etc.

But the keyword is "Fedora"... everyone say it... "Fedora.."

mandrake, is by far better, i learnt on mandrake, even after learning, redhat was hard.

mandrake need the support at the moment, as they are apparently in financial difficulties
I dont know if the basis of this are true, but distrowatch says they are.

Definately Mandrake 9.1 is the clear winner here. 9.2 is buggy and very untested. Redhat 9 is now a dead distro. Fedora Core 1 is solid but has NO functionality whatsoever.

mandrake 9.1 I THINK is very simple to use for a bigginner becuase it is well presented and most things have there induvidual help pages.

I started of with mandrake 9.1 and in 2 weeks i was very confident using it with software such as CUPS.
