I have Mandrake dual booting on my Lappy with XP. I have linux as my home firewall. I use shell ALL the time but only web server related stuff (as I run dedicated servers). Just webby jobs such as mysqldumps, edits to httpd.conf, top, taring and gzipping when backing up, reboots and such when there are high loads and if needed tweaks to slowdown/stop ddos attacks.

Hi,

What quit a weird thing is that my nana who is 67 years old uses Linux on a daily bases. She’s like the top dog of Linux and know it by the back of hear hand.

I don't have Linux installed on my machine yet, but I've been using Slackware on other people's machines, Sun Solaris OS at the university since it's the server backbone... and that's about it. I'm planning on reacquiring my old CelA333 and refurbishing it into a hardware firewall/gateway, but I'm not sure which distro will go on yet.

I have been using Suse primarily ever since I started playing with Linux. My old desktop had Suse 10.0 before the motherboard broke and my new desktop has Suse 10.0 as well. My laptop used to have Suse 10.0 but due to issues with the graphics card, touchpad, and the fact that I only have a 60GB hard drive, I removed the partition and frugal installed Damn Small Linux 2.0. I have also been trying to use coLinux and Debian as well but networking problems have made installing software a problem.

Thanks for the info. I'll give it a shot.

bongo: Actually, linux is very user friendly, in both command-line and GNOME/KDE graphical interface varieties. It's just a matter of learning how to move through it, and paying attention to where each program or library sets its files.
