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 like that..

What does it mean? It means that GNU is confusing the hell out of most people. They don't know what to think of it. It usually just works and its free, which means a lower TCO by default. So its good for competition and bad for monopolies.

I would prefer that we didn't have a dominant OS, instead that every PC hardware manufacturer made drivers for the top 5 or 10 OSs that ran on their platforms. Or that Microsoft was somehow forced by the DOJ to submits all its document formats and communication protocols to an open standards organization for peer review and cross-platform compatibility. But we live in a world controlled by the man and he likes things the way they are.

Lets see if the man can stop or even slow down GNU software.
