Ok so Ive been playing around with Mandrake Linux for some time and I think Ive sort of learned to use it a bit . Now my real question is , Ive heard that if you use Mandrake Linux you dont actually learn alot ( I think I recall it from one of the Distro threads in the forums) . I know how to install mandrake and use the basic GUI interface and configure some of the options through the GUI , however will this suffice on any other Distro ? Id actually like to know more about using the command line arguments and learn more about the power of Linux. Although Im pretty much pleased with Mandrake as it allows me to do everything I need atm on this system, Im wondering if I should move on to a different distro? I have FC3 , Ubuntu, Yoper, Debian, PCQLinux2005, vector Linux, Knoppix (Games Knoppix to be exact) and Gentoo. Please ntoe Im a dial up user so downloading alot of packages isnt an option for me. Should I stick to the mandrake Install I have or should I try one of the other Distros I have with me. Also note that the system Im using this on is actually a dual boot machine with Windows Xp . Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance.
