    So, I got a Dell Latitude Laptop that I use primarly for work purposes. It has my mail from work, my Database type of IDE software (TOAD), and a whole bunch of other apps, that really seem not to be windows based..

    So I have a couple of questions.

    1. What version of Red Hat is good? 7.2 or 8.0

    2. Is there any good type of Database software like TOAD for Linux?

    3. How much space will I need on my machine. Right now I Have 4.3 gigs left on the HD. I guess I could do some deleting of stuff and free up some space.

    If you were to install Linux on your laptop, I'd go with 8.0. That said, I don't think you'll find any software quite like Toad for Linux. I also use Toad at work. I would look to get a box that doesn't have any of your work stuff on it to install Linux. I wouldn't risk a laptop you use for work purposes.

    :haha:

    Yeah.. I know Deja Vu..


    I want to run linux on my desktop but the only problem I have is that I don't have an internet connection that runs on Linux, and I am not about to start paying for one.
