I'll add my 2 cents... — DarrylDunnaway
I guess I dont know enough yet to hate the RedHat. I will learn though and that sounds logical about the bloatware. I am open to running anything Linux.I did run CollegeLinux for about 3 months, it's based off of slackware. — DavidCox
oh boy, I better duck now....but just hear me out first k —rado
Wow...I feel kinda sheepish here as I am brand new to Nolug but, geez, rh is in my heart. Hold on now and let me explain...back in 7.3-then 8.0 days...when it was FREE...I thought it was the way to go on the linux scene..why? It was the most popular and more written bout it and for it. As a gringo, well ya, more support for what I was gettin into.
...got away for bout a year...when I got back into it, humm went to upgrade and it was all fedora...rh wanted money...ok...so I went the fedora route...
I was pissed bout it as y'all are but then, I discoved a couple things:
1. I did not want to leave the rh way of doing things and learn this disto and that and that other one.
2. I did not like the longivity of fedora at all!!!!
3. I learned that, ya, you wanna be big rh man and flaunt your money go buy it..that ain't me but!!!...rh charges you for the disto and the support thang but the source code is in the open source.
4. Here we go! rh comes out w/new release k...2 weeks later my disto comes out. it's full blown Rhel ...got all the bells and whistles and stability of rh w/out the price tag. A msglist and irc that won't quit...ya got it all but fone spt. All that is really done is that the redhat logos etc are stripped out and my awesome distro is here...it's Centos! Right now we running Centos 4.4...as of yesterday/today...2 weeks ago rhel 4.4 came out...support til bout 2011.
I say no more...I won't get into any contest of which disto is best bla bla..redhat is all I know and I am too info-overloaded and don't have time or desire to explore any other distos.
Never any intentions to offend anyone w/all this but was just hard not to say something considering what I wrote above. John Rose email@example.com
