Well, specifically Red Hat, I made $2,000+ in stocks by investing in them. I would have made $10,000 if I hadn't pulled my money out.

Go to [url=www.gnu.org]GNU[/url] and read about GNU Philosophy and copyleft protection. If you understand these teaching, you will understand why linux users love linux over windows. You'll understand why Macintosh software (OS X) is now based on linux (bsd). Most people believe linux to be free, as in free beer, free toys, free stuff. Although you can get linux "for free," it's really about freedom of speech.

Second, I love linux becuase so many people are out there contributing. There is a love for it that I hope will never die.

my advice, if you wanna know about linux, is after you read up on it like freshblue suggested, you download and burn a copy of knoppix (you can get it at linuxiso.org, completely free of course). you can run the whole OS off of the cd, and test it out, and have some fun with it. it's really good at auto-detecting hardware, and if you have broadband, you ought to be connected by the time you're booted all the way in. so if you want to get a no-commitment taste of linux, that's what i would suggest.

um.. depends about what you need, notebook.. I guess one of best support it's done by suse professional 9.2.. also if I could prefer install gentoo (not for newbie) or slackware (idem). if for a laptop, well for a working machine I wouldn't install debian but if I need to use it as gw then it's the best solution..
I'm currently running a slackware server with 460 days uptime, and a gentoo one with uptime about 200 days.. and another slackware on notebook and works pretty good, red hat.. well.. it's not bad, but not the one I like to install for myself ^_^

Don't forget about MandrakeMove from www.mandrakelinux.com . I downloaded the CD and after giving it a little try, I just wanted to stop using that crapy Win Xp and download the 3 Mandrake 10.1 discs (it will really take a while cause I have dial).

Personally, I've always been a big fan of the 'Hat. It has great support, and I think that it has one of the easier Linux installs. While other distributions of Linux others might offer better features, I have always found that I could usually get a Red Hat computer doing what I needed it to do the quickest.

Out of the distributions of linux I have used (slackware, redhat fc2, mandrake, debian, gentoo, and knoppix), I definitely prefer Debian. I find it has the best blend of really convienent features like apt (great package management tool) and still doesn't mess with you or have too much bloat like redhat and mandrake do.

I recommend Ubuntu. It's debian based, and they ship free CDs! It comes with a LiveCD to try it out and an install CD for when you're converted. http://ubuntulinux.org/
