I first tried Linux a few years ago, not because I was completely against Windows or anything like that, but just because I had some free time on my hands. I started off with Mandrake 9.0 which was very user friendly and Windows-like. After reading through a bunch of message boards and learning which distros are good for what, I...

I have a Linux box with three ethernet ports (NIC cards). I could easily give it more. I have one ethernet connection to the outside world at college. College's ethernet policy is amazing, as they give us IP addresses that in theory are fully routable from the outside world (haven't had a chance to try it out)....

Anyone here ever use Xandros? I will be switching to it once I get my new PC hardware after my motherboard died officially, lol. I have picked Xandros as my Linux choice because it has some Windows support built into it. I read about Xandros in a magazine and it said that Xandros was great for those who want to use Linux without...

I would like to switch from Windows to Linux. My problem is I don't know which version of Linux is best for a newbie to Linux. I have played around with SuSE standard server 8 but it was hard and complicated. I think that has gotten me scared to use Linux. But would any of you suggest using those Linux/Windows hybrids like...

I am probably going to switch over to Linux soon, but I am wondering what the best version of Linux for me would be. Preferably something fairly user friendly that doesn't take years of experience to use properly and also something that supports all (or most) windows hardware and software. I know there are hundreds of different...

I'd like to know which Linux distro you use and why you chose that one. I'm thinking about switching to Linux full-time (with a dual boot of Windows for those "just incase" moments) and would like to get a broad idea of what people use for desktop running. The only Linux version I have is a server SuSE 9.0 and it...

So over the last couple days I've re-made the switch over to linux. I've used linux in various forms for a long time and go through phases where I use it more then others, but this time I'm really making a push to use it 95% of the time on my home system (really only booting into windows for gaming). Anyhow going...

Well, I recently decided to switch over all my PC's to linux, and was stumped when I tried to convert one of my laptops. It has a Dell Wireless 1370 wireless networking mini-pci card, based on a broadcom chip. I tried to find a driver on the internet, to no avail. I found NDISWrapper, but despite my knowledge of how to set up...
