HenryVI October 1st, 2005 02:56 PM

I got Fedora as #1 and Mandriva as #2

No surprise to me because I had Fedora first, and answered all the questions with Fedora in mind (graphical installer, Gnome over KDE, rpm based installation etc...) :blush:

1.Mandriva.......these mysterious names is what puts a lot of people off trying them I reckon.:dizzy:
I mean, what does ubuntu mean? sounds like some pigmy tribe from the jungle!:D

They picked Gentoo and number one for me and Slack as number 2. I do like both of those but can't believe I didn't get BSD as number one. Its either not in their list or I'm not as old school as I thought.

No badwayz, BSD is not on their list. Only linux distros :P

Ahhhhh well there ya have it. At least Gentoo was picked as number one for me and I can live with that as Gen rocks most hard!

Accroding to ubuntulinux.org...

"Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". Ubuntu also means "I am what I am because of who we all are".
I like both KDE and gnome, but for this test (since I was on a Linux distro with KDE), I chose KDE, so I got Mandriva as 1, and Kubuntu was on #3.

degsy March 5th, 2006 04:43 PM

The link is in the first post.


It suggested Mandriva for me and the next two were Suse and Ubuntu.

I actually have Suse and Ubuntu installed, albeit as VMWare :)

Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table.

Gentoo
Gentoo Linux is a special flavor of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.

Scary how it *reads* your mind :dizzy:

I took the test and it gave me 1. SuSe 10.0 and 2. Mandriva

I have been searching the forum here and reading a lot of posts, but I'm still a little unsure of how to do this.

Should I get a book to read first? Could any of you suggest one?

What I want to do is install Linux on one of my two hard-drives and then try and learn how to use it. But, I'm not even sure how to get it installed without messing everything up again.

I just recently had to reformat both drives and I really don't want to screw everything up again, but if that's the only way I can learn...so be it.

If someone could just add a link to the correct information if it's already been addressed, I would appreciate it.

thanks,

cajungenes
