I used vine a lot > on one project. What's the best one I wonder? Let me ask an equivalent question before giving you my take: Which is better, emacs or vi? Asking *nix users that question is sure to provoke a holy war. Asking Linux users the above question tends to do the same. So here is my answer: whichever works best for you. For instance, I am a loyal Redhat user, so Redhat is the "best" distro from my point of view because I know where most everything is and thus I am pretty efficient when using RH. I think that all of the major distros have their good and bad points: Redhat and (even more so) Mandrake have focused on ease-of-use (and ease-of-installation), and in some places, this has broken stuff. Debian is the "pure" distro... has a pretty k-a package management system ("apt-get a real distro" is a common quote of Debian users). Such distros as Sorcerer and Gentoo try to combat bloat by being completely source-based. In short, play around and decide which *you* like best. There is a pretty good site called DistroWatch that has a lot of comparison data for the different flavours of Linux. Check it out: http://www.distrowatch.com/ Happy hacking. -Josh -- Josh Glover <firstname.lastname@example.org> Computer Science Undergrad "No segfault, no problem!"
