I’ve been using linux for at least four years now, and I’ve tried out most of the top distributions available. Started off with Redhat 5, which came with my machine. Then tried out 6,7,8 and 9 which I got for free along with PCQUEST, one of the computer magazines available here. I also had a glimpse of Mandrake (now Mandriva) and SuSe, before trying out Ubuntu 3. Ubuntu seemed to grow faster in terms of community and support, and is one of the distributions which will detect almost all your hardware. The latest distribution i’ve checked out is Mepis.
