Red Hat 9

I used to be a linux fanboy wannabe, then Mac OS X came along and scratched all the itches that linux was supposed to scratch. But with the aging, not to mention hard disk-filling, of my TiBook I find I don’t “play” with the OS anymore. After going to OSCOM last week, I got all open source stoked again, so this past weekend I installed Red Hat 9 on one of my old machines.

So far, I’m really liking it. It’s almost too easy…I really didn’t have to do any geek tinkering to get it up and running. 🙂 And its really gorgeous, too. Of course, being new, I’m sure it isn’t stable enough to deploy in a serious computing environment, but for me its just a learning toy now.

Oh, and I found a great site to ask questions at: linuxquestions.org. They’re a distro-agnostic ‘help the newbies’ site, and so far have been very helpful indeed!
