Aight I'm buckling down. Bought the personal edition of RedHat Linux 8.0. I WILL LEARN IT.

Windows is getting more and more on my bad side with each passing day. Palladium.. SP1.. its just not something I can brush aside anymore.

If you guys don't mind, I'll prob'ly be asking for a lot of help.. that is assuming I can get a PPPoE connection going within Linux. :confused:

What desktop enviro do you guys recommend? Also, I've heard good things about Wine's ability to use windows progs in Linux (especially RHL).

Try KDE also, you may like mandrake 9 better than redhat...

Right now, Gnome 2.0.2 is the goods. Alot of features and options KDE should really have.

But (theres always a but)
KDE3.1 is due out in a few weeks. From the screenshots that Bern has been leaving all over the joint and other reviews/previews ive read, its looking like a definate download.
