19. Try Fedora
Edited on Wed Jan-31-07 11:06 AM by kgfnally
I've used all the distros you mentioned, but I noticed you said "Red Hat" and not "Fedora", which makes me think you may not have seen it in a while. Fedora is a whole lot more slick than Red Hat ever was.

They're trying, hard, to address your (and many users') biggest concern- having to use the terminal. Sometimes, it's unavoidable, but then, I occasionally have to open up a "dos" box in XP to issue this or that command.

All that said, I have very little patience for seeing

Dependency failed: package foo- conflicts with package foo-
Installation aborted.


su -c 'yum remove foo'
yum search foo
yum install foo-



Make sandwich.

make install
make clean


foo: command not found

Then I implode.
