Well, the steep-ness is located differently, I would say... I have Debian on my desktop at work, but I also have to administrate a RH box. Debian forces me to use an editor for configuration, but all the locations make sense; are logical. The GUI tools of RH takes me only halfway, the rest takes at least a magnitude more time than the whole thing on Debian. I switched from Mandrake to Debian... it seems to be a trend that people 'end up' here ;-) /M -- Magnus Therning (OpenPGP: 0x6A83A7DF) firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.lysator.liu.se/~magus/ Diamondback, the University of Maryland student newspaper, of Tuesday, 3/10/87: One disadvantage of the Univac system is that it does not use Unix, a recently developed program which translates from one computer language to another and has a built-in editing system which identifies errors in the original program.
