Well I just installed Red Hat 8.0, and I must say...it is AWESOME!

This has got to be the best distro of Linux I have ever tried. The interface is unlike any copy of linux I have tried. The new KDE gives it an almost a Windows XP interface.

Check out www.redhat.com and look over the screen shots and some features it comes with. You can even download it from the site also, but get ready its gonna take a while...its a total of 3 CD's 5 if you count the source code CD's.

Ok, I;m confused what is Linux?? Is it like windows or somthing that protects your system or what????? Help me out in this one. I was looking on the site and I didn't really understand nothing and it just looked like another windows type thing.

Ahhh, a world without windows.......

I'm still stuck with Windows 98 for my main PC, but I have Mandrake Linux 8.x on a workstation and server here at home.
Very stable, and very secure.
MS Windows will be around forever, because it appeals to the masses, and does it very well. Linux is becoming a budget alternative for computer savvy folks who don't mind putting in a little "wrench time" to get their systems up to snuff. And Linux offers a cheap (free) way to get secure, reliable web and e-mail services suited for small and large enterprises.

I am familiar with only the Win 2k, the rest of the words on that line are foreign to me as well as the other lines. You said operating system which I am familiar with Windows and Mac. What is that other jibberish you posted?

NOS should have been the better statement.

Network Operating System.

Most of the ones I listed are NOS. But, Linux, Unix and HP UX can be used as both a workstation or a server.

Actually I guess you can say both.
The OS is what runs on your computer and gives you that nice graphical (point and click) interface. UNIX and Linux operating systems are known for their command line interfaces (like DOS), but they now have a graphical interface like MS Windows to make it easier to use. Most distributions of Linux can be had for free, and Apache web server (the worlds most popular), can be dowloaded for free as well. Why pay MS $$$ for software that doesn't always work, when you can get better software for free. I would venture to guess that this server is not running a Microsoft operating system.

Note: I am not a MS hater, I just mangage some HP and Sun systems, and dabble in Linux at home.
