I read it, Fedora Core 2 ate my boot record once, and Fedora Core 1 was very frustrating for me when I first tried Linux, so I've been trepid to bother installing it again.

I like the ideal of Linux, but I've been timid to bother trying to install it again.

I'm going to carve like 10 gigs out of one of my drives to install Suse on, it seems a lot friendlier, I just need to find a 9.2 download (or can I download 9.1 and upgrade to 9.2 within 9.1?)

There is a big learning curve though, what is the best place to start?

Some apps look cool, like the BlueFish I think its called?

But then again, I have many legit Windows apps as well, I get lots of cheap EDU prices (XP Pro and Office 2003 only cost me $20... and Microsoft handed out free copies of Visual Studio.Net etc...)

So its again a question of switching from what is working fine now to something else... whats the incentive? What will be better? Is Gimp Better than Paint Shop Pro? I already use FireFox and Thunderbird and many other free apps like JCreator etc.... I run PHP and MySQL on IIS for web dev, is that better on Linux?

I have much to learn I guess.

I also unfortunately have an ATi card and I know that ATi isn't up to snuff for Linux ;)
