Guys i wish to switch from Windows to Linux. Pls help me out with it. 1. Which flavour of the Linux will be best for a amatuer ? I m well versed with all the windows OSs. Also i am aware of the unix OS. I have used Knoppix for quite some time now and i m impressed with it. AFAIK red hat is good right ? but is it suitable for windows user with programming back ground to switch over ? 2. Which portal will help me the most from base to extent in getting along with Linux.
