Re: Debian PC Requirements
I remember hearing about Corel, I never knew Debian was to be its successor,
almost makes me wish I started learning Linux earlier.
Debian isn't a successor to Corel. Corel, like a number of other
distributions was a commercial distribution built on top of Debian
(slink - the predecessor to potato). So it was a slink base with a
Corel-modified KDE desktop and some dicey hardware detection. Corel's
Linux has finally been taken over by Xandros which is planning to
continue in much the same vein. But these commercial distros have never
had much success because once you get the newbie using it, he quickly
discovers how easy it is to progress to full Debian, with all the
advantages and none of the cost :-) Corel's selling feature was
telephone support - except nobody ever managed to get any support!
