fax receiving question


What distro comes with an Enterprise/Business class faxing program as part of the package ready to use ? Something like WinFax Pro which automatically receives inbound faxes 24/7 and can be set to pickup on special rings (like two short...etc).I've already spent to many wasted hours trying to download and install faxing programs with zero results . I've got a company to run and an auto receiving fax is mission critical to that enderver. I need it to dependably receive without being babysat.
Thanks for the help in advance

That is one big question. For a new beginner in Computers I would say not because they want to run many games and and they need to use the same as their family and friends. And also for one to learn to do things like compile software and edit config files will just scare and confuse one. As for one that has many years in computers especially starting in the days od dos thay would feel more comfortable in this type of enviroment. But then again for one that never used linux and not much of windows one could say whats the difference you need to start from somewhere. I myself have started in the dos 3.0 days with windows 386, then used OS/2 for about 5 years while using Windows and keeping up to date to Linux and still use XP to all the Server side of Windows and just waiting for next big new OS out there.

My opinion on this is about the same as yours I guess, although there are some distros that are easier to work with than others, as well as some desktop environments that are easier to use than others.

But I like linux as the underdog. I expect the day it really becomes as user-friendly and as popular as windows will be the day that we suddenly find ourselves at the mercy of 100,000+ viruses and other exploits.
