Why the hell would you want a comp from gateway?!?!?

I used mandrake, don't like it too much. It all comes down to RED HAT. yes, i know it's the best everybody. You can d/l linux pretty much any linux site. Don't spend ANY money on it at best buy or shit. if you do, i will smack you with gizmo's great peniX.

Well, If you're very new to everything and you're looking to use linux...but you still want a windows type "click this and it will do that" feel, then I'd go with Red Hat or Mandrake. They do everything for you really, and you don't really have to hand configure much.

Slackware is what I use, and is what my server uses (OpenBSD & FreeBSD have some hardware conflicts with the server). Slackware doesn't have a great packaging system, and not many programmers put their programs into slackware packages. So you've usually gotta install everything from the source...which has it's ups and downs.

I'd say, start out with Redhat or Mandrake, and then if you like it, and you really wanna get down to the bare bones of everything...try Slackware.

Just remember...you're going to miss your games an awful lot. That's why on this computer...It's a dual boot with Slackware and Win2k.

bastard, install Win4Lin or Wine and WineX. You'll be able to run anything in slack that you can in windows...

ESPECIALLY in win4lin since it loads windows in a window, like it was meant to be...

Nah. I prefer to keep my operating systems segregated. Like they're intended to be. Running windows in a window...PROPOSTEROUS! [Joker]

Go locate Win4Lin, I have the rpm for it somewhere, so on some distros you have to get a package manager, but you can find it most of the time on diff sites, i believe the manufacturer charges $50 for it or something though...

wut 'bout VMWare on lin.

I can't get it to work cuz I can't find a working serial but I got it working on windows and it's the fucking fattest prog i've seen. It was 12megs and it's download is sooooooo worth it.

I run win98 in a window just for using my LIve! Drive , I have win2k and debian all this on virtual disks, ram, harware,etc.
(WInXP is host system).

my respect to the Vmware coders...
