    BSD is definitely worth learning. But as for linux, I'm very partial to Ubuntu lately.

    only cause they don't understand it.

    it is different then your standard linux, but you soon realize it makes MUCH more sence where everything is located. and it is much more secure too :)

    FreeBSD is what i'm gonna suggest.

    BSD is nice but it's hardware support is still not good enough for me. If it worked on my laptop well, I'd use it more.

    I first tried Slackware in '94 or '95. Then I tried... something Corel was into after that. Then I got into redhat, and then into Fedora. I am not happy with Fedora. Next time I do an install it will be SuSE. I'd like to use Ubuntu, but does it have a corporation offering support behind it? Reason I ask is that I hear its great, but I need something that has support, for beezneez reasons.

    Canonical are the people behind Ubuntu. They offer support contracts and such. They also certify other companies to provide Ubuntu support I believe. They're not a huge corporation, but (from what I understand), they're fairly well established.

    I ran SuSE for a while and was fairly happy with it. The RPM system is just so fucking shitty, though. Debian package management is much better. The package management is the one big thing that I prefer in Ubuntu.

    I don't know anyone who actually knows something about anything who is happy with Fedora.

    Alot of the utilities in Fedora just... don't work. Like the Samba stuff.

    Is Redhat Enterprise any better than Fedora, in terms of utilities for administration, etc?

    Me neither. I keep trying fedora everyonce in a while to just see if I like it. And everytime it disappoints.

    Never tried RE, but from what I understand it's where they took RH after 9. I liked 9.

    If you can go with Ubuntu, do it. It's what I'm running on my laptop in 64bit, and it's working well.:naughty:

    I have to say gentoo or ubuntu. I have gentoo at home and use ubuntu on a machine here at the office. Been wanting to try freeBSD but dont have the time and I hear that support for hardware is lacking.
