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.

Missing the Aplication Question

Linux is great. ReadHat has done wonderful but why is noone addressing the MSAccess need for the Linux world? How can we be happy if we need to boot into some windoze to have a decent inexpencive front end for a database. (Dont give me MySQL I use it, but I need a Rapid Development tool to create Forms, and Reports handle events etc.

Second As long as Linux is only giving us a glofified typrwriter situation (Linux with Open office) as great as this is it is not possible to replace windows. We are in need of a Desk Top Publblising suite on Linux as powerfull as Adobe, Correl, Quark. Running these things under Wine is not a solution for me.
