I'm sure its very hard to say, but what is the best version of linux? I mean, I've tried to install things in linux and stuff with the whole make, make install blah blah, and have to install RPMs to allow that function to work, but have to install RPMs that allow for the installation of RPMs for the RPMs required to install the RPMs needed to install make and make install.

So its more along the lines of the easiest to use and most well designed. I've heard good things about Red hat, Fedora is pretty bad in my opinion and SUSE sucks. So far I haven't tried much, but I'm thinking of perminantly switching over, who can say what is the best?

i recommend trying the knoppix 4.0 live cd....

on another thread i mentioned i had that and popped it into my win xp laptop, rebooted, it found everything, and i mean everything, it loaded fast, and ran fast, found the my hard drive, my wireless network card, my cd drive, my dvd drive, my usb drive.....smooth as silk.....

when i get a chance im going to actually try and install it onto a desktop im not currently using to really see what it can do.

im not a linux expert, just a newbie and i have been to www.distrowatch.com, and downloaded probably a dozen or more linux distros, and the knoppix was by far the easiest to use.....
