    Linux OS


    I just installed Red Hat 6.1 not too long ago on my laptop. I think it's a
    wonderful OS and plan on building a Linux server instead of a Win32 server.
    I'm quite happy with Star Office and I am also running JBuilder 3.5 for Java
    development. I agree that Emacs is a little too unfriendly. Most C/C++ programmers
    are going to prefer a Visual C++ type environment; unfortunately there is
    nothing comparable for Linux. The fully Java powered JBuilder is pretty good
    on Linux for Java people though.

    Re: Linux OS


    Hi,
    I amy be new to this place, but definitely not new to linux. No doubt linux
    is a great OS but definitely I would prefer slackware over redhat. Basically
    the reasons are 1) Mostly manual install 2)Their security stuffs are found
    and patched up immediately 3) Downloading from the site is very easy as the
    stuff is broken down into peices and one does not have d/l the whole stuff
    at one go.

    What I do not like is here in my country everyone is for RedHat and they
    only give RedHat support, and sell only few linux distributions and they
    are not in any way in a position to give any support for Slackware as it
    is way different in its working from RedHat and thus the only place where
    my problems can be solved is the slackware forum.

    Hence I am not for RedHat.
    From my usage of redhat I find redhat a little unfreindly type of linux.
    But hey everyone likes the distribution they use. Hence I'll conclude by
    saying "Enjoy your linux".
