    Yup, the drake is the perfect distro to begin with.

    From my own journeys around the web, I would have to say that Mandrake and Red Hat are probably by far the 2 most documented distributions out there. I think there is probably a lot to be said for the advantage that has for a newbie.

    This SuSE is kicking my a$$ still, but not ready to give up yet.
    I surely could use a copy of SuSE for idiots though.
    The struggle has paid off some, there are some powerful tools in that distro that I truly appreciate.

    But in all honesty, I truly feel that the Mozilla and Netscape browser that came with it can't even hold a candle to IE. That's a shame, as I do surf quite a bit for online help and news concerning Linux. Quite a hindrance really to fully incorporating Linux as my primary OS.
    Right now I would say MS is still going to be my heavy-hitter. But I do hope to learn more of the "darkside" and be able to get a lot more done with it.
    Some days I just have more patience than I do on others:D

    Final????
    The only time an OS is final is when it is abandoned by the developer!

    Windows 95 is final!

    Send me three blank cd's in a postpack with some stamps to the same value and I'll download drake 8.1 and post it back.
