Re: Hardware hassles: Linux vs. Windows
You should have a go at Mandrake, never had any problem with recongnizing
hardware. Very good for easy-peasy installations and for friends and family
who do not want to have hassle.
Thanks, I'll look into it.
I used to use Mandrake pretty happily, but then I had problems with
their package distribution system. I could sometimes select
combinations of packages for installation / upgrade that would lead to
an non-bootable system. That kind of unforseen problem worried me
greatly. I wonder if they've improved since the Mandrake 9.1 days...
I've also heard that SuSE is pretty good in the "it just works"
category. Do you have a sense of why I might prefer one over the other?
