I have two ditros of linux red hat 7 and mandrake which one would you use to learn on i am very new to linux so i want to go with the one that is best to learn on?

both of them are fairly user-friendly distros, but you probably want to start with red-hat, it would probably be a little higher on the user-friendliness (however you spell it) scale.... however, either one would work.

Learn what? Programming, security, forensics...etc. etc.
the one that is best to learn on
May answer your questions, or it just may raise more..??

Redhat is NOT more user friendly than Mandrake. And this should be in the OS forum (Yes, I know, it's older, but someone could move it maybe.)

I would just like to add the fact that RedHat no longer supports anything older that 9, and support for 9 ends in July of this year AFAIK.
RedHat went to Fedora for desktop users.
Real security doesn't come with an installer.
