Linux Have you ever been in situations which made you think "I wish I had Linux running right now", or are you a person who just would like to try Linux quickly? Knoppix Linux might just be your thing!

Dear Stan,

Don't give up. I'd like to see more of your work here. I'm glad to see a young person take in interest in linux. It's great that you have the courage to write, for the whole world to see, a review of a distribution that has caught your eye. You have done something that many adults here who have criticized you here wouldn't even consider trying. And you've done it without monitary gain for the good of the community. Bravo!

But... I do have a couple of recommendations for you.

First - in emails to friends or comments on a message board, spelling and grammar are optional. However, they are not optional for an Op-Ed piece on a semi-professional news site. I understand that english may not be your native tongue and that you may have expected the administrators of this site to proofread your writing. Whatever the case, your spelling and grammar are weak - make sure it is reviewed. But, I would bet you have aleardy learned that lesson.

Second - check your facts. Check your pro's twice and your con's thrice. There are a couple of glaring errors in your relativly small review: desktop options and persistentness of data. I won't warm over the counter claims given elsewhere - and i'm sure you've confirmed that you were wrong aleardy.

Finally, as I said before - don't get discouraged. Keep trying. I look forward to reading your next piece. If you wan't i'll proofread it for you ;-) just email it to me.
