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.

I have a fianl program due in 4 days...I was not done but much of it was finished. I go to turn on my computer today and I get an error message that says a dll file is corrupt and the system cannot boot.

well, the only way for me to save my data is to take it to compUSA (where I bought the thing) and have them extract my data from the computer when they fix it (there is a problem with the back light of the laptop) and that will take 10 good, or I can get it up and running again with a reinsaliing of windows which will erase all my data anyway (disks that came with computer)

so I am never going to use windows again for ANYTHING. XP was stable until this crap happened. thank god for debian.
