    I've never used Linux before, but i would like to. Is it worth it? And if so which is the best version.

    Thanks in advance!

    I never used Linux also but I think Knoppix is nice if you want to try.
    Knoppix is a Linux OS that can be booted directly from CD.
    No installation required.

    Downloads can be found here:

    The iso should also be available on the Kazaa Network but probably slower

    I would have to agree with Bond. Red Hat is the easiest of the big three distro's (RH, Mandrake, and Suse).

    After Getting Linux Do I Need Drivers?

  6. Software & Hardware   -   #6
    I don't know about that but I really think Knoppix is great for Linux newbies.

    Knoppix is the ideal tool for any person who wants to discover GNU/Linux without any headaches, complicated installations or risks for his computer. It is also an ideal learning tool, security tool and rescue instrument (even for Windows machines).

    Why is Knoppix ideal for beginners?
    Obviously, because there is nothing to install. But that is not the main reason. There are nowadays plenty of distributions which install themselves almost totally automatically (for example, the Mandrake distribution, one of the very best and most complete ones, is much easier to install in the 'automatic/recommended' mode than any version of Windows). Knoppix is also ideal for other reasons. Trying out Knoppix is a zero investment and zero risk proposition: you do not need any dedicated computer and you cannot, no matter how hard you try, crash your computer or lose data by playing around with Knoppix.

    there is a nice list of mirrors for red hat there.

    im waiting for suse 9.0 its meant to have ntfs and winmodem support which is gonna be a major step forward.

    but redhat is very easy to use.

    LindowsOS or the other mentioned aside from Red Hat, Mandrake and SuSe is another newbie solution.
