Newbie: What is best packaged version of Linux?

Post by Don Howe » Fri, 18 Dec 1998 04:00:00



Don't want to start a debate.  Which do you think is the best between
Caldera or Redhat for a newbie Linux user?  All of my background is
Windows from 3.1 through NT 4.0.  I'm looking for something to play
around with at home and and at work, maybe looking for a replacement for
internal DNS and Web services.

Thanks,

You don't want to start a debate, but you're asking which is the best
distribution?

Lumme.

JMY

PS: Slackware

I would say for a real beginner go for Red Hat
for Slackware you will need to know a little more but it is more flexible becuase it takes away some
of the extra gui stuff in the other distros.

1. Best version of Linux to install for a Linux/Unix newbie

I recently installed both Red Hat 6.0 and Caldera 2.2 on my laptop(1
distribution at a time of course). Caldera's installation GUI was
friendlier but Red Hat did a better job of correctly configuring my
display, modem and printer. I never did get Caldera to print properly from
my Toshiba Satellite 2545CDS. I have been very happy with the Red Hat
distribution and Star Office (which came the Caldera package). Good luck!
