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.

dvd player

to get good DVD support I would try installing apt and synaptic from freshrpms.net. Then have synaptic grab OGLE, the Linux DVD player. Not sure about the rest but OGLE just works for me. Menus and everything. I've had some success with mplayer. And totem is just mplayer, so I know it might work but it probably wouldn't support menus, subtitles, etc. OGLE was designed for DVDs.
