Re: Which LINUX

Yeah, nearly I'm living proof of that. I used DoS a few
times at school (I preferred AIX), and then used win95
at home for a year and a half. I occasionally have to
use WindowsNT at work. The more I work with it the more I
reasons I have to hate it, but every now and then not
having lots of pc hardware experience causes me problems
when doing some things in linux (I bought my first computer
after I got my BS).

I just wish the company currently I work for would get with
the program. We make telco stuff (CTI: IVRs, enhanced services)
most of it runs on unix, but our IT department is all NT.
The THEILOVEYOU virus was our vietnam, because our stupid,
stupid IT department's solution to the problem was to turn
off the whole company's email. "We'll save the Email System
by destroying its usefulness". They've unfortunately
turned them back on (a day later), I had assumed the 2nd
part of the solution was to install debian.... but I guess
I was wrong.

I've noticed persons with no computer expirience at all seem to learn much faster than thier Windows and Mac expirienced counterparts. Maybe it is more difficult to unlearn than it is to learn. ;>
