Just to respond to your point about this being a useless question. I may
have experience in RedHat 6.0 but not in any other distribution so I can't
know the merits/demerits of each one.
I also don't have the ability to install more than one distribution
(specially if I have to pay for them) so I have to know before I install
anything exactly (or close enough) which one is right for my purpose.
I take your point about looking up the news web sites but I don't want to
post questions to them as they incur Spam mail by the truck-load.
Thanks for your help though, you did made a useful comment.
So, ok, if I have used this service incorrectly I apologise. I am new to it
and should have read a few more archives first.
