Count me in! smile.gif Been using it for quite some time, it was my main desktop OS until I got sucked into the dark side that is Mac OS X laugh.gif

Now i still run it on a spare box that is used mainly for Bittorrenting and side project development .. in the planning stages of a special project for LYN forumers! biggrin.gif

Another Debian fan here. Been using it for ages.

I have downloaded and installed SUSE 9.1 Pro with KDE.
I have also downloaded Mandrake 10.1.
If anyone needs a copy, just march up to my place with a few blanks.

Just to keep up, I installed and tried Suse. Will try Mandrake next.

Anyone wants to log in to try Suse. More than happy to create some user accounts.

Sounds like a good idea!!.
People who are keen in having a look/try Linux, you can download VNC onto your windows machine. Use VNC to remote access and try Linux.

i heard that debian & redhat is the most stabil distro.......(dunno right or not),but i recommend mandrake or redhat for new user because it is user-friendly......& use virtual pc or vmware to install linux on windows platform will be better

Hey there fellas. CentOS and Ubuntu are worth a try. I use gentoo biggrin.gif

.. we're gonna have much less of those distro-picking threads from now, unless they are constructive.

Anyone ever used CentOS? I recently talked to a System Integrator and I was informed that CentOS is a 99% clone of Red Hat Server Enterprise. Anyone would like to help me clarify if this piece of information is true or a fake?

Hey there.
If you have a lot of patience, sure, we can run any of the distro above.
All the PC here at my site are running at the speed less than 1ghz and ram = 128 ghz, some of them are running FC3, some running Centos...
It is running quite smooth too.. I must say..
