hai dudes this the poll to decide which is the best linux distro!
Debian in terms of stability ...
mandrake for newbie like me
Me a Debian 'Sarge' devotee...
though there is nothing called Linux Distro
it should be GNU or GNU/LINUX Distro
Suse Pro GUI and user freindliness rocks!!
Knoppix is also one of my favourites.
I think for someone new to linux,RedHat is the best for ease of use right from installation.
There are more than 100 distribitions of linux. Wat to do?
I think ELX
because mera bharat mahan!

Well, I have a CD of a live GNU/Linux distro called Bhavya OS (means great OS). That also is truly Indian. Want it?
@tuxfan that is based on RH , isn't it !!!!
@firewall : You are right. I think it is based on RH. But still an Indian Live distro RH didn't give any live distro
Anyway, I have just come to know that PCQ Linux does support Internal Modem. Although I haven't yet tried it, but Kudzu reported me a missing hardware when I removed the internal modem from MoBo. Will try to configure and let you guys know.
@Tuxfan.. it's really a nice info. tell me the make of your modem.
can anyone tell how the bsd5.2 open source is ?
free bsd has the most efficent networking implimentation thus used by major conpanies for networking tasks(yahoo uses it big time) Free BSD is good for networking and it out performs all other OS in this field, other wise i think linux is a better option in terms of support
You know what ? It was the BSD guys at berkeley who developed TCP/IP protocol stack for UNIX platform back in 1983 or something ... their distribution called BSD originally created a storm in the networking market with BSD Networking Release 1 & 2.
All the other UNIX vendors (including Microsoft) implemented their own TCP/IP protocol stack by basing their work on BSD's implementation !!!
@ firewall : Mine is a DLink Internal Modem. I think its a Motorola chipset. Secondly, I just came across a link on PCQ site that has an article about using Internal Modem with PCQ Linux. So will have a look at it and see
havent installed any versions of any distributors...
how does linux look like guys??
is it better than windows??
Hey friend, why dont you go over to this site < www.lynucs.org > and see those really awesome GNU/Linux desktops screenshots that people like us have contributed ?
SUSE SUSE SUSE aka sachin sachin sachin chack chack chack
