Running Debian 3.1 now... :cool: Love it, love it, love it. This distro is so much better that SuSE, and the price is non comparible. :D

Once my system is configured comfortably I will engage into linux programming. Definatly looking forward to that. :D

haha, the flame war began from the second post.
About Debian, i've tried it a long time ago, looked hard then, i'm sure this is something completly different, but now i just don't wanna try anything, i'm totally happy with gentoo.

Everyone is definately entitled to there opinion. ;) Personally I just really enjoy linux. Windows is nice, but it seems to me that linux has much more power, but a persion must know a lot about computers in order to get it up and running. ;)

I ran SuSE 8.1 for a year, but I did not like the idea of having to purchase another distro to upgrade. There was a way to do a distro upgrade using the apt program, but I failed and my system was rendered useless. I went back to Windows XP Home.

Home is nice, but linux presents more of a challenge. I have to partcially agree with prog-bman, windows 3.1. is kind of nice.

My first computer was a 286 12Mhz, 30meg 4MB RAM HD, 51/4 Floppy with MSDOS 5.0, and then it was a 386sx 12Mhz with MSDOS and windows 3.1. Spent a lot of time on that system, so there is always a place in me for 16bit. :D

Basically linux is linux. Pick your distro and roar with it. Have a blast and enjoy that free software. :p

Windows NT 3.5 was a sweet system, worth a look if you manage to get it through official channels (quite rare). It's like Windows 3.1, but 32 bit! Plus, Word 97 runs on it! (http://toastytech.com/guis/nt3513.html) (Bottom of the page) :cool:

I forgot about that OS, and I would have to agree. I believe that I have Windows NT 3.51 on CD somewhere in my mysterious stack of software. :D
