Hail, how are you gentlemen ?
All my friends who are linux geeks\nerds use slackware, and when i tell them i want to use linux and i am going to install red hat, they say that red hat sucks, and big sucks! hehe
I wouldnt go for mandrake... i think it wont be a real linux experience.

ive got Debian on my 2 client machines, running as unstable. and Mandrake 9.0 on my server. I prefer Debian for my client machines, only because of its packaging system. on a server, that isnt the problem as i dont have to install packages all the time. I've also used knoppix a few times. As a recscue disk. And i gave a few copies to 100% windoze admins at my school for them to play around with.

I started w/ Caldera from a Linux Dummies book, moved to Mandrake, now I'm all about the FreeBSD.
Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.

I like both Debian and RedHat. RedHat pretty much sets it self up and with Debian you have to get your hands a little dirty.

Ive only used Mandrake 9.0 since im on 56k with little to no money. But unable to use it very well since i lacked a hardware modem (damn winmodems haha). soon as i get one i will be using that again.
