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.

Sadly, not my tale

I installed RH9 on a spare 10GB disk and my Dual PIII 866,
expecting it to be a breeze, and that I would love every
second... Sadly, I have only gotten it to boot a couple of
times. All the rest it has panics in printk, very early in the boot. I suspect that it is either related to my USB keyboard/mouse, my IDE controller, or my motherboard.

So I am still waiting for Linux to 'just work'.
