Hi I'm a little new to linux although I had installed mandriva some time ago and knew my way around it (sort of). It happens that I was forced to format my HDD so I tried out Ubuntu and was completely lost.
I'm looking for a distribution that can help me learn but I don't want to start with something difficult (example ubuntu gave me problems)
Another question: Which distro is the ideal server/security build?
I heard from some thats it's red hat. Then again red hat will probably body blow me. What distro are large company's or goverment using for security purposes?
I'm a pc repair techie but I have no knowledge of programming.
