i was curious are there any benefits to linux that i dont know off over windows?
i know the obvious ones like open source and stuff.
i have downloaded and installed redhat8 as a dual boot with xp. windows sorta didnt like it but i manage to get them both working.
suddenly and out of no were after working for 2 weeks just fine my linux stops. linux will not boot on my computer any more.
i would ask you guys how i could repair it but i have no idea how linux works and explaining it to me would just take to much time.
i originaly installed it for:
1)as a support for linux i dont like the idea of microsoft owning the world
2)so i can experience it
3)as a learning process. i was told that in the process of installing and using linux you will learn alot about computers. thats is true.
4)i heard it improves internet effeincy by 500%. a bit hard to believe tho
i have given up on linux for a while for the reason that my modem does not work with it. but i want to join it again. i will soon join a school to teach me how to use linux or at least get started on it. i know i can probably learn on my own just like how i learned to use windows but i would rather it done in school.
isnt redhat9 beta out?
what linux distribution should i use. and if you are going to say mandrake or redhat tell me why?
oo and liek i said benefits to lunux :)?
