    If you want auto detection use mandrake, if you want to learn linux use slackware.

    isn't slackware too difficult for newbies?
    what is auto detection?
    thanx for replying.

    he probably means auto partition

    some linux distros will automatically partion for you if you want them too.

    check out this for some installation tips:

    Hi, wich distribution is the best for develop? And if posible some that isn't too difficult to use.

    I'm planning to use C++ and Java.

    Any suggestions?:geek:

    All the major distro's include the common development tools, you may have to download the java sdk as a seperate package, but there are versions for all the big distros. For easyness go for redhat or mandrake, for learning as much about linux as you can then slackware, debian or gentoo, just make sure you select all the dev, devel od development packages during the install.

    Thank you...

    Now that I "have" the OS. Another questions. I need to work with Java Beans, to make a clon of Crystal Reports. Where can I find some info about JBeans?:confused:

    And which software or package do I need to install to work (and make the clone) with JBeans?

    Thanks in advance

    Bucket loads of beans here. In linux you'll find that there are free/open source IDE's and tools that would cost you tens of thousands for windows, google have a dedicated linux search that will be able to point you to anything you might need.

    Xboy,

    You seem to have a great handle on the tech world but in one of your posts you said that red hat was more sluggish than a tweaked out xp box. I find that hard to believe having been using red hat on pc that are too slow to run windows and actually being able to use them productivly(read they FLY)

    Jeff
