general Question to u all? answers will b appreciated
i have just started to use linux. i want to stick with one distro ... which will give me a chance to learn linux as well as give me a complete alternative to windows for my regular fun stuff, listening to music, watching dvds, browsing internet, installing and removing new or different applications [ i am unable to install window maker manager on rh9.0. and the programmers of windowmaker also says in the install instruction file that red hat has a lot of annoying hinderances].
i have choice between red hat distro and mandrake.
the only thing that is stopping me from completely sticking with mandrake is that there are no books on mandrake linux [except for mandrake 7.0] at amazon books.
and there r tons of hundreds of books on red hat linux.
what do u all Experianced Pro linux users have to say about this.
can i still learn using mandrake reading non-mandrake linux books?
i understand we need to spend a lot of time to play with linux ... but come on in this busy age of responsibilities, tensions, we can not spend 24 hours a day 7 days a week on computer.
also if anyone knows what is the reason that there r so many books on red hat, debian, caldera, slackware and no books on mandrake ?
