    Question Best version of Linux

    What is the best free version of Linux, and where can I get it... I would like one that allows you to switch between Linux and Windows at startup...

    Last I checked, all versions of linux allow you to choose which boots...

    As for the best free version, I wouldn't know...

    Btw, wouldn't this be better off in the Linux Discussions???

    Last time I checked every version was free if you want to d/l it

    Mandrake 8.1 is good if you are new to linux, it has a nice windows type graphical install, and will setup the partitions for you, and will setup LILO dual boot if you already have windows installed.

    I personally prefer Debian though.

    This is in the Microsoft Security Discussions.

    www.mandrake.com is just one place you could get it from....

    The guy asked about dual booting it with window, making the discussion involve microsoft to an extent, so get over it, I think you will be OK after the shock of seeing a thread possibly posted in the wrong forum by accident.

    And if you want to get technical, the dual booting of Linux with any OS doesn't involve the secondary OS at all, just LILO.. You can make Linux dual boot with another distribution of Linux too I believe..

    neway, I was just posting a place he could get the distro from, so shush... I have recovered from my shock now 8)
