Red Hat I keep reading all these tales of woe of people having bad experiences with Linux. Sure, I've had my own bad experiences, across many an OS, but just lately I've been running a Red Hat Linux 9 desktop full-time at home and have yet to run into any major issue. What follows is an overview of my personal experiences with Linux. But first, a bit about me.

Good and bad

I really like RH9 too, but I can't use it... yet. KDevelop won't compile anything, or make for that matter. Since I'm a newbie, I'm pretty sure there's something I'm not doing right. But just for comparison, Mandrake has always had everything setup and ready to go. With MDK, KDevelop always works everytime without me having to go out of my way to get it to work. Also, it doesn't help that RedHat has an unusual directory layout regarding where it puts the KDE libs and headers.
