    For casual use, office work & games etc...basically what you would use windows for, id go with Mandrake or RedHat.

    If you wanna get serious with development and (advanced) networking etc, then try Slakware.

    Personally- I like Mandrake. So simple to use.

    There's a new one out now called Redmond Linux which is said to be almost as easy as Windows to setup and run. :smokin:

    I checked out that Redmond Linux and does anyone else think that it looks too much like windoze, I mean it is called Redmond Linux as in Redmond, WA home of microsoft

    Other than that it looks stable, but I think i will stick with mandrake 8.1

    I read a review on it a couple of weeks ago and it was recommended for 1st timers as it was reportedly as easy as Windows to setup. :smokin:

    Get slack, no point in getting one of the "easy" distro's and forming bad habbits :)

    apparently slackware is extremely difficult to use to start with :(
    the slackware installation is in console too..



    redhat is easy to use, but after you get used to it, go to somehting a bit better :)
