Debian is my first Linux distro.  

I've got so used to editing the text file configurations that when I tried
RH5.1 and I was very confused with the GUIey configuration.  I have
nothing against GUI configurations.  It's good for new users actually.

Also, RH5.1 had lot's of things that they overlooked for instance, the
LD_PRELOAD of LibBrokenLocale.so in the Netscape RPMS.  And the complexity
of making users initiate PPP connections.  Can't blame RH for that.
Security reasons maybe.  Or maybe it was just me.

Just my opinions.  ;)
