A hangout for all the linux users of AfterNET.
What distro do you reccomend?
We tend to suggest Ubuntu
a lot, but there are advocates of everything from Slackware to Gentoo and even rolling your own. It really depends on your hardware, yourself, and what you need it to do.
I have never used linux, but I want to try it, how do I get started?
We suggest you get an Ubuntu
'live-cd' – this is a special CDROM that will boot linux on your computer without touching your hard drive. You can try it out and see what its like, with no commitment or risk to your data.
