You make a valid point. Curiosity got the better of me with the talk of
Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04) and I wanted to check it out. Perhaps waiting
-to install another distro- would be the most appropriate decision to
make. Would you recommend any books to assist in learning about linux?
I believe Ubuntu 7.04 CD will run as a Live CD - meaning you can at least
try it out without doing an install. IMHO the package management in ubuntu
and debian is a lot easier to manage than in suse - but that's probably
just my preference.
Another good reason to at least look at several distros. I looked at
Ubuntu, Mandriva, Red Hat, and Gentoo when an organization wanted to
migrate off Windows. The package management was what tipped scales - some
others were flashier than YaST and Smart is good for about all of them, but
YaST was the easiest for the office staff to grasp - especially the
uninstall side. Each distro has its' strengths and weaknesses - use the
right hammer for your job.
