Linux - What version/distribution is bes

By kelvin_anwanwan ·
Hi there:

I have just recently been introduced to Linux OS and I'm researching and asking ambitiously which distribution of Linux software is best for online and offline transactions.

I think that if you want to go with KDE SuSE offers the best possible pre-configured KDE desktop environment while RedHat is the best overall if you prefer Gnome/enlightenment.

If you choose to do all of the job by yourself any distribution will fit.

Anyway I prefer SuSE 'cause the commercial distribution (80'000lire in Italy) offer a huge selection of software without the need of (slow) download.

That's a question that can start a redhot debate. I've been using Linux for over two years. I've used Redhat primarily, but have used SuSe and Slackware on multi boot systems.
Slackware has its ardent followers and it may be the original (or one of the original) distributions.
All distributions have some minor bugs, but as a newbie, you may not be aware of them. If you're new to Linux, start with Redhat. You'll get up and running faster with the provided tools.
Once you've got your feet wet, move into other distros such as Slackware or Debian.

I would recommned Corel Linux for it's ease of installation and it's familiar windows like interface. It also has a custom KDE interface with an almost network neighborhood type menu.

If your a Windows user and would like to migrate to a "familiar-feeling" distro of Linux then I would strongly recommend Corel. It has some issues but it is so easy to use and integrates so well into a windows network that I would even consider using it as a Win98 desktop replacement in the enterprise!

I will say Redhat is best for Newbie. After you get the knowledge(beginner) I suggest you use slackware as it provide good package of software and good secruity. For e.g a lot of reh hat user have to log in as root to access some program, thats verydangerous. Slackware is very original and easy to install(for me :)
