I have 7.3 and was very impressed by it. Is 8.0 much different? I may have to get that...

My favorite linux is Mandrake. Redhat is Micro$oft of Linux world.

What's Bluecurve? Graffiti, I like Mandrake just fine, but Red Hat just seems to work much better for me. Fewer problems and such.... 1_153_370_371_407, I HAVE that picture and it ROCKS!!!! I work in a primarilly SCO Unix shop and I put that on my background, just to screw with our hardware director, and you should have seen the looks I got!

Tha caption reads "When you program open-source, you are programming COMMUNISM. A reminder from you friends at Microsoft." Shows a kid programming on an iMac (yeah, like you're likely to use Linux on an iMac...) with some REALLY evil looking "Mr Communist" guy behind him. Pretty funny....

BSD at home, AIX at work. Though I did install RH 8.0 on a spare box last night. Anybody remember how to get out of X? I tried CTRL-ALT-BKSP, but that didn't work. I stupidly selected the GUI login option, and it goes right to X and a black screen. I need to rerun XFConfig but can't get to a # prompt. [>:/]

Solaris for me. Been using 8 for production, but 9 is growing on me.

ManDrake is RedHat with more spit & polish, a slicker installer interface, and more user friendly - but if you read the man files - there RH. And the install is RPM. ManDrake would not / cannot exist without RH!

try `telinit 3` it changes your runlevel from 4 (X11) to 3 (multi-user console) or, change your config file that starts you in X (probably /etc/inittab)
