[debian-knoppix] RE: debian-knoppix digest, Vol 1 #889 - 5 msgs
Does anyone have a link to info about this? I thought from (various
sources) that MS actually (legally) bought the first version of DOS...
WRT mirrors, I had to look around a bit before I found a mirror with the
latest version of Knoppix (3.4_2004-05-17). Although once I'd found it,
the d/l was extremely quick :)

I wouldn't say that it is difficult, it is just different. If you are
switching from Windows or an RPM based distro, yeah there is a learning
curve to be dealt with. Debian is a lot like Slackware. They both have
their own methods and layouts and will frustrate you until you get
familiar with them.
