so i'm in the midst of building a new computer. i like slackware, but still want to try other distros. i'm mostly curiuos as to what you people think about trying red hat. not just to see what it's like, but from what i've heard, red hat is used in like 90% of linux servers. i'm wondering if it would be worth it to install red hat to become familiar with it? i'm curious anyway, and so no matter what i'm gonna try it. but is red hat really that much different from other linux distros? for instance...if i have installed apache and mysql on slackware, is it gonna be a different process for red hat...using any different commands? so far the only difference i really see is that red hat has more commands which would be used on a server, as well as slackware having it's init scripts different (bsd instead of sysvinit). so yeah, i guess my basic question would be. is one distro enough to say i know linux...or should i try out multiple distros, especially red hat or suse or mandrake b4 i actually get somewhat confident in running a linux server?//
