    That is quite impossible to answer, especially
    considering your following comments. Besides,
    who are you ?. Are you going to be who you think
    you are next week, as you may be now, or are you
    just a static person that dosen't change. !

    How come i get the feeling that your trying to
    heard me into an idea that just suits you. Your
    not really looking for an "open" opinion really.
    Just something thats going to fit into what you
    may have well already pre-conceived.

    Please don't vote according to your likes, but
    according to whats best for a linux n00b.

    New it !, your not really interested in my
    opinion/experience at all !

    Some of the problems, so called "n00b's" seem
    to have in common, is a total reluctance/fear,
    to move away from the Windows mind set, that they
    have been trained to except. On the one hand, there
    sick of the insecurity of Windows installs, which,
    by the way, directly relates to why Windows provides
    that air of ease.

    If you didn't have to bother using a "key" to get
    into, and then start your car, well, i suppose
    life would run a little smoother. But then you
    probably wouldn't have your car for very long either.
    And besides, remembering/learning how to not loose
    your "key" ... Well, that ain't so hard really.

    I did with windows.
    >>

    Ok, "smart" ???, but reluctant


    You seem to like "deb", well, distro hopping
    can at least introduce a variety of possibilities,
    but the differences will only boil down to the
    maintenance utilities employed, along with the
    "init" style used. I think the rest will just be
    aesthetics associated with the users Window
    Manager. A person needs to stick with something
    over time, to really come to learn very much of
    anything about it. After all, they really are all
    the same !


    Personally i started with RedHat 5.0, but went to
    Woody as i found it easier to learn from, and
    "debconf" was the most unintrusive maintanence system
    i could find. Now, it's more a cross between
    "testing/unstable", and with a newly upgraded
    libc6_2.3.2. Still tweaking a few issues there .


    Once you over come the Windows indoctrination
    thing, you'll probably find, what ever Linux
    flavour your doing, surprisingly more simple than
    you first though. Along with the satisfaction that
    comes with actually being in control of your
    system. Which means, of course, making decisions
    regarding it.

    If you can read and aren't afraid to experiment,
    and know how to make backups from time to time,
    and testing them, Then ... you won't have any
    real problem.

    No offence if that all sounds a bit patronising,
    i don't think i actually mean it to be as such.

    Oh, my vote ... deb of course


    jm
    I really appreciate it. Thanks

    Yea I must say some corrections now ..

    YOu said Debian, I go with a deb based =)
    Somethign I can do anything with , sounds better right?

    I suppose it does say deb based in the subject
    heading

    I'll have to read it over a bit more, as you
    have probably mentioned various reasons. But,
    i'm wondering what contrasts you found your
    self. Concerning those distros. As it's only the
    maintenance system and init that will distinguish
    different Linux's.

    Deb is Deb based, isn't it

    Whoww, the high and mighty are out, I voted MEPIS it works and is now on two of my nine computers. Just think, you can carry one CD with you, to your Winblow friend's houses and load a working Linux system in five minutes for them to see and play with. You can now SHOW them all the things you have been telling them about Linux in one neat package.

    However I do think this one should have been posted in the Newbie forum, not Ded's hard core forum.

    I think it would be better to show one's excitement about the what ever it is Based distro in the Newbies zone for the best exposer for those wanting to give Linux a try. That is the area most Winblows users start at and if we can get thier feet wet with these so called "Maintenance Utilities" then maybe we will start seeing a change like Firefox is doing to IE.

    But you still have a use for it and that is good, "If it boots then perfect", I like Knoppix also but, I now use Mepis:

    1. It boots in English, no need for a saved configuration file.
    2. It has the tools system on it also.
    3. I can load it on a customer's Winblows machine and show them "You bet there is life after Winblows", and be able to load it on the spot for them!

    well thanks for your posting and opinion, but I asked for hd install not only cd . Folks have told me MEPIS is better hd install than Knoppix but I had already created this.
