Mallard, you might want to check to see how many people have had problems
with the "Window 2000/XP/ME" installs. ME is a very good example of wasted
money. W2K has had three service packs, and I know people that have
purchased XP that still can not get it installed. You might also get
Windows installed, but what is worse is when you install a few apps and
things start crashing down on you.
Linux does not have uninstall problems, nor do new installs put everything
into chaos.. Where is the tradeoff?? I would rather have problems
installing then to have things a few months later come crashing down. It is
much more difficult to get back to where you were. Windows, any version, is
notorious for crashing after several application installs. Windows will
eventually have you re-installing everything, or at least that has been my
experience in the last 10 years..
I think every operating system has had its problems, but I can say that my
Athlon 1800/MSI KT333/1GB Memory/GForce 2, and ATI Radion 7500 works great.
I think Suse has been the easiest to install out of all the versions of
