 Mandrake 8.1

My first linux distribution was Redhat 6.1 but it came with Gnome 1.2 and Kde 1.something witch were really bad, espcially the fil managers, and i didn't have the patince to learn text mode comands so i switched to win only.During this summer i wanted to try linux again and a friend of mine had just downloaded Slack8 so i made a new partition and installed it

The new versions of kde and gnome were really much better.Slack8 is nice but from a novice point of view(mine) it really drives u insane.First i had to find out how to configure my graphic card and monitor,then my soundcard and u can't imagine how frustrating it can be if u've had little,or no prior experience with linux.What i owe to Slack is that thanks to it i learned the text mode commands: at least the most important ones.

Then i go hold of Mandrake 8.1 wich i like very much because it's user friendly and that it has a Control Center which integrates a lot of useful tools especially for the newcomers.I also tried Redhat 7.2 but i stil like and use Mandrake 8.1

At it dosn't seem at all unstable to me( Duron 700, v3 2000, SbLive).

I remember in 94 when I bought "Plug and Play Linux Fall 94" - by yggdrasil how cool it was to be able to try another operating system other than windows. That was the day I bought my first "Linux Journal issue #1 March 94", and can remember the gentleman at that computer show handing out red hat leaflets (who could that be =)?, as well as a few other vendors doing much the same. Taking home that cd, and crashing my computer to no end finally getting the filesystem standard up and running after probably 3 gallons of coffee! I remember my friend Dave and his other computer buddy getting multi head displays running not too far after that, him showing me the first sights of fvwm! This was cool.. Well, after crashing my machines, reinstalling countless times any of the os'es I tried in years passed till now I have tried, Yggdrasil, Slackware, Red Hat, WGS, Infomagic, Openlinux, and SuSE. From my experience - Slackware was the best Distro to learn from because it enabled me to pick and choose tarball source, and unpack, compile, install and symlink libs, etc. Learning how to manage the libs with ldd etc, creating symlinks, etc are essential to keeping up on how the system works in basic. I stayed with slackware for a while, but then wanted to try Red Hat. I liked Red Hat to a point, but in certain respects I wanted more versatility, and house keeping utils, batches, etc to take care of the dusting, and other that I was getting tired of doing. Its definately a great distro, but for some reason I got turned off by it. Then I tried SuSE. Right from the start @ about 5.3 version I knew that even in the construction of the types of dialogs whether be based on ncurses, and automated updating behind the scenes - I knew this was one to look out for for me. Since that day I have been an avid SuSE fan, and will NOT change my choice of primary Linux interest. I feel it has a concisely written set of manuals, a VERY nice updating feature integrated very closely with KDE, and for the novices, if you don't notice, it does all of the background updating on things such as .fvwmrc, and etc, yule notice that opting to run maybe fvwm or whatever - the menu's are Consistent, ie ... You dont have to edit them by hand, SuSE has done ALL of the work. There are more bells and whistles, and quality programs, features, development tools, etc, etc, etc... as far as I am concerned as anyone else, SuSE has done their homework towards a global interest, and has made it an enjoyable pleasure to have the ability to choose between wm's, find just about anything I want, and ride the wave of current technology for linux. This is from experience, and what and how the software is layed out on how it interested me. As any one else they are entitled to their own opinion. I know that I would like to now begin to start developing linux apps, for now I have a solid foundation of how the system can be broken, repaired, and installed. But nowadays I would like to focus on other interests. Not that I want to be lazy, but I have been through the 'trenches' like any other linuxer. I can still keep 6-8 operating systems running smoothly. And have no problems when hardware works like its supposed to. Interchange file management between operating systems is very useful to me. SuSE makes my linux computing very enjoyable! I reccomend SuSE 7.3 Prof. And if the flamers, or deciphels of creed deem it neccessary to flame me because of something 'I' like, then you don't know where it's at because then to me you sound like you just need to 'prove something', or try to flame because you may have a complex. The free software community makes all of this software for people to use freely, the IDEA behind it sometimes gets taken for granted, and others really dont know a lot of the work that goes behind a massive effort. People spend so much time trying to get credit for themselves, while the majority gets the short end of the stick. I can't understand one's who flame, or antagonize, they dont see the good for what it is. People / software community spend their time doing nice things consisting of free software, the amount of work behind, and others take take take, and try to claim intellectual domain, when then and there they dont even know the premise behind the idea. They get so caught up in the idea of 'me'. As far as the linux community, I would like to be a part of a 'team', and not with a bunch of 'me's trying to prove me wrong, or something less.

Well i agree. I usually dont like to voice my opinon, but lately I feel the Linux revelotion is worth the Fight. For someone who had started out using RH 6.0 then gettin discusted over 7.0 and had stopped using on my old 233MHz PC. Well recently I came back and after trying the different flavors I found it is worthy of a FRESHLY built PC. I have decided to run Mandrake 8.1 Even though there are some configuration issues that i will submit soon, This was the best feeling and using PC I have had in a long time. I now use KDE( so smooth and easy) and this is the best workstation that I can be proud of. I also cant wait to get my server up using FreeBSD with their new port coming out in January. Im waiting to see how that handles as well. The only thing I want is more innovative screensavers. I guess well never be truley satisfied. say wasnt this post to show KDE support of different systems.

Well, we've had our proxy/ldap/NFS- server up for about 105 days now, and it would be more if we hadn't made a little miscalculation regarding partition sizes. : ) Only problem is with the stupid stunnels that won't drop away. Oh, well, just a /etc/init.d/stunnel restart every two-three months. : )

I like debian, sure, only problem is that if you want to have a stable distro, you have to go with a lot of -really old- packages. I'm too lazy to start compiling from sources : ) apt-get install/update+upgrade is much simpler.

At work I use a merry mix of Debians (stable+unstable+testing), RedHat 7.1, Mandrake 8.1 and FreeBSD 4.1.

There's no right answer to what distro is best. It all depends on what you want and you'r level of expertice. For newbies (and experts as well) I can happily recommend Mandrake. Easy to install, minimum of hazzle, just a few questions when you install, and wheee! you've got your linux box up and running.

I use Mandrake at home, mostly because I wanted to try it out and then fell for it. I value getting work done much more than I value spending hours configuring your system. And it even detected my Wacom Graphire on install ;)

So all in all, go with what works!
(and I'll soon build my own Linux-from-scratch system when I get about buying a new AT-power source ;)

Cheers,
Markus

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
