Posted by DragonWolf [send private reply] at January 17, 2003, 03:10:46 AM I never hear you guys talk about Debian... I've been told its one of the easiest ones to get help with and to find drivers/software for.
Just started using it so don't really have an opinion in it yet. Only other distro I've used was RH 7.1
Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at January 17, 2003, 09:25:36 AM Yeah, Debian is similer to Slackware in some ways, but I'v heard it to be very good.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at January 17, 2003, 03:48:06 PM I like Redhat 8.
Debian and Slackware are both excellent too.
Posted by Qubit [send private reply] at January 17, 2003, 07:01:04 PM Debian, RedHat, Mandrake, SUSE, and Slackware are all similar in many fun ways. Debian and Slackware are for those with the do-it-yourself mindset, with patience and the ability to read the bazillions of How-Tos available. All of these distributions can offer a good dose of learning, but Debian and Slackware make it inherently easy as one must do a lot more toying at the get-go (but not too much mind you, otherwise I'd like Linux From Scratch... I'm too lazy for that kind of involvement though).
I knnow the main thing for you to do is read up on both flavours of linux, and see which one would fit your computer usage the best. Good luck and have fun.
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at January 17, 2003, 10:23:12 PM Huh? I'm really lazy. Debian does everything I have to do with other distros for me. Install discover, mdetect, and hotplug...everything works great. Plus with the alternatives system and stuff...
Just because the install can be difficult if you've never installed before doesn't mean the system itself is difficult to use.
