    crap caldera

    Whatever you do just dont get this linux distribution, its horrible with a ridicolus install system. It refused to work on any one of four different machines even though i followwed the setup routines to the letter. Not only that it decided to destroy part of the hard drive which is now rendred useless, even with fips i cant recover it. Dont get it
    go for mandrake or suse or redhat or anything but caldera

    just for verification purposes, I have heard similar things about Caldera... although I know a lot of people still use it.

    Caldera won the award for the best distribution at Linux world or some annual meeting of Linux users.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    WOW I've had experiences like that with M$ but I never expected to hear of such things from linux! I hope someone didn't just make it up!
