Re: Which LINUX

Just try regular debian or maybe the Oreilly/VA/SGI pseudo-potato, if you have too many problems try corel or stormix, both are quite easy, far easier than windows, I goofed with corel for larfs, and I think I clicked like 5 ok boxes and it installed tons of junk that more or less worked, stormix was similar. At least they're basically debian systems.

When linux is the first OS you've ever installed it can be quite confusing because there is so much you don't know, but I've learned more in a year of working on linux at home, than being an junior HP-UX admin (at HP) for a year.

I know the answer to this will be obvious to those on this list,
but I wonder what criteria people have used to decide on which
distribution to use...where/for what?

I have debian on a desktop at home, simply a "users" setup. I
now want to setup a laptop (IBM Thinkpad 600) with a development
environment as well as the usual "office like" stuff (StarOffice
I'm presuming) to handle the legacy corporate stuff like M$
documents and presentations.

I could do the debian stuff again, but I wondered if there are
other candidates that I should consider. I chose debian for the
home box at the recommendation of a friend (who actually did most
of the installation for me remotely :).
