    Good for you, my opinion is quite different.

    People like minded could procede to Slashdot, where such
discussion is commonplace and constructive discussion is the
exception. I read these lists so that I can get useful tips and/or
help the fellow newbie along the way. I seek entertainment elsewhere.

PS (and this *is* my last word on it): I simply cannot understand this
need to bash RedHat, or the stereotyping of all its users as
incorrigible newbies. I used RH for a long time, I switched to Debian
because I think it's better, but that doesn't mean I think RH sucks or
that its users are all idiots.
