Chat about Linux in general
the very first disrto I tried was Mandrake 8.0, and that started my down a long road of trying all kinds of Linux. I tried all versions of Mandrake/Mandriva all the way to the newest 2008.0 one, RedHat, (when it was still free) Fedora, Suse, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, and now I've finaly settled down with Mint, and I like it the best so far.
Corel linux as the first experiment. Then Redhat, Fedora, Suse to Ubuntu and now Mint.
Not on the list mine was Puppy Linux
Ubuntu last may.
Mandriva. Big mistake on my behalf. RPM sucks, Debian based is the way to go.
