    Hello I am very young Microsoft computer programmer Age 12-18 and I was wondering what version of Linux would you use if you wanted to be a network analyst. The reason for the change from Microsoft is because I want change and I want to be invovled with the movement of Linux.

    I'd check www.distrowatch.com and see all of the options.

    Then I'd look into Helix:

    If you want to learn go get Slackware or Debian.

    gentooooooooooooooooooo
    only if you know what you're doing of course...
    as a first distro i suggest using debian
    after that i suggest slackware or gentoo
    i went from debian to slackware (for 2 weeks) to gentoo and im loving gentoo
    you learn a lot with gentoo
    i am currently working on Linux From Scratch as well, which teaches you even more.

    I don't think you learn much using Gentoo.. it's very different from ALL the other distros..

    You learn to use Gentoo
