    Heck, why not go progeny linux? Isn't that founded by the original Debian found Ian Murdock?
    The reason why I stick to Debian are two very good reasons.
    1. APT (dependency problems are automatically taken care of)
    2. Three different releases. Actually, I'm not sure if other distros do this but eversince using the stable version of Debian, my computer has never crashed or run into other problems. My experience with other distros, well, let's just say I thought linux is supposed to be crash proof.

    sky,

    Since Libranet and Progeny are both derived from Debian, it's probable that it'll have APT built into it. As for the three different releases (stable, testing, and unstable) I don't think they categorized them that way. It seems that both Libranet and Progeny can be installed with ease. The only downside of installing any of those distros is the lack of support from users.

    I see, maybe this is my own dogma, or perhaps dilemma? I think I'd better stick to only one distro, it is a healthy step for me, ain't it? Because there are too many distros to try out, it is a never ending task! Therefore, when I become adapted to Redhat, I think I'd better stick to it. Do you agree?

    Regards.

    sky,

    Everything in life, including linux distros, have their pros and cons. You'll learn from experience what those are but for now, stick to Redhat and see how you like it. From there, you can see if you want to move or not.
