1-0 out of 5 stars PC DOS 2000 CD-ROM
According to the installation instructions in the User's Guide you must have a copy of DOS 3.3 or higher (THUS THIS IS AN UPGRADE). But, there is no indication in Amazon's advertisement or on the cover of the User's Guide that this is an upgrade. The first mention that it is an upgrade is on page xii of the User's Guide.

So if you don't already have a version of DOS, DON'T buy the CD-ROM.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best DOS yet
I'm a big DOS games enthusiast and I've found PC DOS 2000 to be hands down the best version of DOS I've used. The best features of PC DOS 2000 are the amount of free conventional memory you can get compared to older versions, as well as the inclusion of ramboost, which is an excellent automated memory manager. I built another pc just for this OS (dual booted with win 2000 with no problems). Windows 3.x runs great in PC DOS 2000. I've been able to run many games perfectly that I haven't been able to run well or at all in almost 10 years. No problems running hardcore memory hungry games like Ultima VII. If you like DOS and you're using an older version do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.

5-0 out of 5 stars IBM PC DOS 2000
If you're truly an old hand at computers, you may still have 5.25 floppy drives, 2400 baud modems, AST memory expansion cards and maybe even a few CGA video cards laying around. Do you remember RLL hard drives of less then 50 Megga bytes? How about LIM ver. 4.0? If you know about this stuff, you're probably also a big fan of the command line. If so, DOS is for you. And THIS DOS is probably the best out there, not to mention last.

Like most DOS OSs, (and unlike GUIs) PC DOS is fast, boots and loads/runs programs nearly instantly, and works quite well with Windows 3.x. PC DOS 2000 comes with plenty of utilities plus the REXX programming system, built-in Antiviral protection and good documentation. I recommend it highly! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars OS/2 Warp Operating System
A stable, smooth running OS. I currently have it installed on an all - SCSI computer I built. The big problem is hardware driver availability. If you want the convenience of a near - monopoly software maker, you might want to look elsewhere. But if you want a better OS, it's probably worth searching for the right parts. And I DO stress SEARCH. Make sure that all of your parts (sound card, video card, modem, etc) have OS/2 drivers available. Once that's done, you'll be in for some pretty crash - resistant computer sessions. You WILL like this OS once you use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars First class operating system choice
Version 4 is still more stable and reliable than the previous version. Easy install with a nice GUI, this fine OS is Internet-ready and of course, LAN-ready. It talks with MACS, Unixes, Netware and Windows without a problem. If you need Windows 3.x emulation, there is a specific environment for this application, without GPF errors of course. IBM makes periodic releases of collections of fixes (a.k.a Fixpacks) through Internet for free.

5-0 out of 5 stars No more BSOD!
Sick of Microsoft's Blue Screen Of Death? Get Warped! Internet apps, Voice Navigation, and Warp is MUCH easier to use than that *other* OS. I would NEVER consider using ANY Microsoft OS again after using OS/2! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Like the Personal edition, Red Hat Linux 8.0 Professional shares the same innovative, unified Bluecurve interface of Gnome 2 and KDE 3.03. Also included are three installation CDs, two source CDs, a documentation CD (though Red Hat's documentation hasn't had the makeover the interface has), and a multimedia and office applications CD. It also comes with the whole lot on a single DVD (no disc changing) and a small administrator tools CD.

The main difference between the Personal and Professional editions of Red Hat Linux 8.0 is that Red Hat Linux 8.0 Professional is aimed at those running servers and/or developing software. This version also offers a lot more paper documentation than you get with the Personal edition, including a network administrator guide. This makes it easier for those without advanced skills to start networking, serving, and developing. However, the software supplied on the three installation discs is identical in both versions.

Red Hat Linux 8.0 Professional comes without MP3 support, without RealOne Player, and without a default CD burner. It uses the same Anaconda installation program (somewhat cleaned up from earlier versions and with a more logical sequence of actions), and has the same contempt for many older PCs--especially those without AMD or Intel processors.

Hardware detection and setup is excellent for most common cards and devices, including USB devices. It's especially hot on networking hardware. However, because many hardware manufacturers still don't support Linux, new types of devices and very old devices can be problematic. If in doubt, check the supported hardware list on Red Hat's site.

Apart from missing multimedia support, Red Hat Linux 8.0 Professional doesn't do the kind of simple things that make life easier for new users. For example, most new Linux users come from Windows. Having the installation script add an icon to mount an existing Windows disk or partition is trivial and makes it simple for new users to access existing documents and files. But here, you're immediately stuck in a Linux-only universe where the first thing you have to do is edit fstab to get at your old files.

On the plus side, almost everything in Linux can now be configured from the graphical control panel, a far cry from just a couple of years ago. You may never need to edit a raw configuration file. Overall, with its far better paper documentation and wider range of installation options, Red Hat Linux 8.0 Professional is actually a better buy than the Personal edition for those new to Linux. Experts can save money with the Personal edition. --Steve Patient, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars why do they do that
why do redhat upgrade there os so often,
that's a minus factor compared to windows.
repacking with fancy new box wont one time redhat buyers
comeback. like me. they gotta show us why and where we
need it not just for servers but games mutimedia and internet.
linux is getting too big too soon a bad sign for a
relativeely young os. igive three stars because
there are new users who needs it and will definitely
love it. let's frag M$.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Good The Bad and the Ugly
The Good:
- The user interface definitely is the most appealing to the eye compared to previous versions.
- System administration tasks are much more user-friendly. No more ugly linuxconf. This is probably the most noticable improvement that jumped out at me.
- Software updates are also nice. The system automatically checks for updates and warns the user when updates are available to the system.
- Journaling file system! Most home users could care less but this allows Linux to gain more respect in "serious" IT shops.
- Mozilla (Netscape) is finally nice and stable.

The Bad:
- The price is a total rip-off! Keep in mind that the ISO images (these are used to create the CD's that you pay $$$ for) for the Red Hat CD's are available through a ton of websites listed on redhat.com for anyone to download FOR FREE! I know that Red Hat as a company is trying to become consistently profitable but highway robbery is probably not the best way to do it.
- Even though the "look and feel" may be prettier, the Red Hat folks still have a long way to go with respect to human computer interaction. Sometimes you will get a notice saying there is an update to some package like libgtk++ from 2.0.1.4.2 to 2.0.1.5.2.3 which doesn't necessarily represent the version of libgtk++ itself but may be the version of the packaging of this library. What is libgtk++? What does it do? Confused yet?
- Just because it comes with a word processor/e-mail client doesn't mean you are going to want to use it!
- From the number of e-mails I get from Red Hat, I am suprised to see how many updates/patches have been released to address potential security risks. Whats also interesting is how even the smallest MS security threat will make all the tech headlines all over the internet while these warnings from Red Hat almost go unnoticed. This is something to consider if you are going to have your system connected (using broadband/cable modem/etc) continuously. Out of the box, this is not much more safer than any other product out there and tweaking it may not be as user friendly.

The Ugly:
- Updating the kernel. The way they make the kernel package (RPM) look like just another innocent update is downright mean and ugly.
- Give this OS to your parents. Now have them incorporate their favorite true type font (introduce the font to the X server). Watch as the ugliness unfolds.
- Just cant get over the pricing!!!

Just my two cents

4-0 out of 5 stars MANY PLUSES, FEW MINUSES!
Very few people would be surprised to see that this latest version of "Red Hat Linux" has most of the attributes that make "Suse Linux 8.1 Professional" thick: including OpenOffice and Ximian Evolution.
The ease with which this OS copes with a multi-system environment makes it a top bargain for anyone gunning for a Linux-based server. Its graphical interface is wonderful!
Although I'm aware that most hardware producers favour Windows more than they do Linux, I was still disappointed to discover that there is no support for MP3. There is also, no room for what should have served as my default CD Burner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I've been using Red Hat Linux 7.3.93 (Code Name Null) for a while and I really like the new look (Red Hat Bluecurve).
Today I just placed an order of Red Hat Linux 8.0 Professional Edition instead of Personal Edition because I really want it on DVD! (Surprise?) Also I want all 4 manuals along with Office & Multimedia Apps CD and Sys Admin Tools CD. Of course 60 days of Telephone Support Privilege is an excellent way to keep in touch with Linux Experts!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Red Hat relese yet.
I've been using Red Hat 8.0 for about 3 weeks now. It's the nicest looking edition of Red Hat yet. It comes with KDE 3 and GNOME 2 with Red Hat's new Blue Curve desktop theme. Now KDE user's won't like it because it looks an awful lot like GNOME and GNOME users won't like it because it kind of looks like KDE, but if you're new to Linux and not yet bigotted by the desktop wars, I think this is the most usable version of Linux out. It comes bundled with Open Office 1.0 which will let you read and write some Word documents or you can even use the Open Office document format. Red Hat has enhanced their graphical administration utilities and still comes with all the goodies we're used to seeing from them like Samba, Apache, Bind, CUPS, etc.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but dated
MS-DOS. What more can you say? It's fast, stable and was the work horse of PC's for years. However, if you still use DOS (even sometimes) like I do you should try IBM's PC-DOS 2000. It's just as stable, a bit faster, uses less memory and it has been brought up to date. MS-DOS is good. You can't go wrong with it. But PC-DOS 2000 is better. If you're updating give it a try.

5-0 out of 5 stars MS-DOS 6.22, a MUST buy!

5-0 out of 5 stars DOS still has a future!!
There is still a place for DOS in the computing world - older
systems, with limited resources, that are doing basic word
processing, database management, text-only Internet access,
and telemetry support - and PC DOS 2000 is the perfect OS
to keep these machines chugging along ... Y2K compliancy,
new programming, ease of use, and many utilities.

Just a comment on the Warning! review by Dr. Ronald Gibbons -
IBM makes it very clear that they do NOT recommend using
PC DOS 2000 with Win95 or Win98.

The following is quoted from IBM's FAQ page

"Can I run PC DOS 2000 with Windows 95 / Windows 98?"

"Unlike Windows 3.x which requires a separate operating
system (DOS), Windows 95 and Windows 98 have combined
DOS and Windows into an integrated product. It is not
recommended that you install PC DOS 2000 on a system
running Windows 95 or Windows 98."

2-0 out of 5 stars Warning!
The product MIGHT be good,but I never had the opportunity to use it. The program loaded witjout problem, but then I received a message indicating that PC DOS 2000 does not support the version of windows that I have loaded. I have Windows 95 and MS Office. No matter what I did I could not load thoses programs, nor could I return to DOS 6.0. In the end I had to reformat Drive C: and completely reload all of my software. There should have been a warning about which versions of software that PC DOS 2000 supports.

5-0 out of 5 stars DOS is not dead
PC-DOS 2000 is a minor upgrade to PC-DOS 7.0, the version that came out as Windows 95 was released. This version is Y2K compliant and supports the new Euro currency symbol. It comes with many features not associated with DOS such as pen support and PCMCIA support. It also comes with a GUI backup program, Stacker 4.0, IBM antivirus, REXX programming and a plethora of utilities. Runs on anything from an 8088 upwards. I use it on my laptop with Windows for Workgroups 3.11. Even though it's a 486 I find it faster than the Pentium laptops my friends have that are running Win9x or WinME. I credit the speed in part to PC-DOS 2000. After 17 years of tweaks and improvements to DOS, PC-DOS 2000 is honed for speed and minimal memory usage. And it's just about perfect. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for a power user, not a regular user
The choice of an OS is a very religeous subject, So dont think too much about the rating, it's either 1 or 5 depending on where you stand. If you are a developer, or a power user, very into messing with every little part of your computer. THIS IS YOUR OS! However, if you are not into those things, and you have problems with computers, and want something relatively simple with a small learning curve, use Windows, BeOS, or MacOS. Linux is still not userfriendly (took me, someone good with computers, 3 hours to get sound working, another Linux expert I know took an hour on his to get sound working). However, due to the power and low overhead you will find this a good operating system if you are familiar with any form of *nix or want a power OS. This will be what my Linux box runs.

5-0 out of 5 stars best linux distro
Linux is too hard for the casual user. Linux users don't have access to good word processing or good games. Linux doesn't have an understandable desktop.

I really got tired of hearing that. So I went out and bought Red Hat 7.1 and it's the best OS on the market, rivalling even the mighty BeOS for ease of use. Simply choose which way you want to use it, and the rest is automatic. We are starting to see some other games coming over to the Linux distros, with Loki leading the way. If all you need is a simple desktop, Red Hat will provide. If you want just an internet connection, the distro provides the amazing Konqueror, mozilla, and netscape..plus about 6 other tools.

If you want to learn more about computers, like I do, Red Hat or Mandrake is the place to begin. If you are interested in any aspect of development or of beginning to configure your own system, Red Hat is your choice. It's chock full of tools of every sort, and as with all Linux distros, you can always bring in more.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not much more than the downloads...
If you have a good broadband connection, download the ISO's and burn your own. That's pretty much all this is. The documentation is minimal at best with quite a bit of advertising, easily replaced by third party books you would be wiser to spend your money on than this.

So why did I buy it? Because I couldn't get my downloads to work right until after I'd already given up and ordered it. Murphy's law of downloads :-D...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best out there
I've been running SuSE 7.1 for the past couple of months and it's been great!! So I decided to give RH 7.1 a go (since it's supposed to be one of the best/most used distributions out there). I was very dissapointed. To start Gnome's file manager kept respawning itself, programs run under certain logins and cause segmentation faults under others (these include programs that come standard with the distribution), and since I'm a Java developer what really got me was that you need to go through a whole work-around just to get Java to work!!

I'm sticking to SuSE and would advise everybody to do so. This release just doesn't cut it - don't buy it!

1-0 out of 5 stars If you want to run a linux server look elsewhere
First I need to mention that I am not new to linux. I have been running various versions of SuSE for the past 3 years and FreeBSD for about 6 months (but I won't got into that).

When I decided to drop BSD and go back to linux (being short on cash) I decided to give RedHat a shot. First, since I have an Adaptec 2940 SCSI controller, the installer refused to run. So I switched everything over to IDE (spare HD's are nice) and installed it. I will say that this installer is fairly easy to work with and went smoothly.

Now that I've got the system up, I want to start working on the firewall and getting rid of some kernel bloat... Well, no go! You can't recompile the kernel (unless you want to remove the function prototypes from every header file)! The firewall is an excercise in futility too... ipchains is installed by default so the rc3.d script that fires it had to be nuked, even then iptables doesn't work (I even tried stuff right out of the docs and it wont work)

all in all if you want to run linux, look somewhere else (myself, I'm going to try mandrake 8.0 next), and avoid the headaches that this distro will cause ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Mandrake is great!
Linux-Mandrake has always satisfied me, and this version/distribution is even better than the old(er)/other ones. The automated installation process is a cinch; you don't even need to know anything about linux/unix to get it running somewhat decent, and when you do learn and get used to linux (and it's expert installation/configuration), you can re-install it for even better performance and flexibility. There're a lot of good applications that come with this distribution if you're using it as a workstation; although I'd recommend the "normal" (complete) version of Mandrake instead if you're using it as a server OS only, because you'll save yourself a bit of money. If anyone has any questions about this, you can feel free to e-mail me (admin@brien.com). Have fun!

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice distro, good hardware support
I moved to Mandrake from RedHat because Mandrake supported a device I had that RedHat did not. This is a nice distro for users new to Linux because it's fairly friendly to install and is one of the best at having built in support for newer hardware. Mandrake also has two community tech support lists that are very active, and their programmers participate regularly. The PowerPack has some nice extras to play with, like ViaVoice and Arkeia network backup software. It seems to install well on a variety of machines. I'm very pleased with its ease of installation and its performance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top of the Line security
If you are reading this, you probably already know about Linux in general - its not for the average user, and not for games, etc. This release is one of the best Linux packs onthe market for real world servers, since it has a pre-configed security setting called 'paraniod' level security. It makes the machine rather useless for a desktop, but great for a server. It adds the wrappers for you, turns off all un-needed deamons, and makes a clean tight install. It can save you hours of work regarding security - this is one of the best picks for a Linux web server (if you dont use BSD). I give it a five star rating.

1-0 out of 5 stars If you think you want linux: read this
I never got farther than the installation program. It made about 1.5 gigs on my computer unusable. I eventually stoped the installer because I had no idea what it was doing. Don't buy this unless you have a good lawyer...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Distro
Yes, this is one of the easiest for 'newbies' but...it's not just for newbies. It's just as powerful as most any flavor of Linux, especially the deluxe version.

In response to the warning for Sebastien, don't worry.

Yes, it's true that it doesn't come with KDE2 final, in fact it doesn't come with KDE2 at all, but KDE 1.99. But, that's one of the things that makes this a great Linux distribution, MandrakeUpdate. Just go the the web site and MandrakeUpdate will automatically update your system to KDE2. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Red Hat Linux 8.0 Personal breaks with earlier Red Hat (and all other) Linux releases with the unification of the Gnome and KDE desktops. In effect, Red Hat has made the two almost indistinguishable in a production environment.

This unification is achieved by creating a theme--an add-on look and feel--called Bluecurve, which uses identical icons and other eye candy for similar features in each, and creates similar Gnome and KDE menus. These menus now sport a limited range of well-chosen programs with simple descriptions of what the program does. This is a change from the earlier approach, where users were offered all the browsers (now you just get Mozilla), six text editors, and so on, all with nondescriptive names to confuse new users.

Much of this effort can be bypassed by most new users, as the default is now to install only Gnome 2, but then, Red Hat Linux 8.0 Personal is really aimed at businesses looking for a low-cost, reliable production desktop to replace Windows.

Which brings us to OpenOffice.org, the public domain version of StarOffice 5.2, released by Sun and heavily reworked into a fairly decent replacement for Microsoft Office--though currently without an integrated database. OpenOffice.org ditches the old StarOffice desktop (as Sun has done with the commercial StarOffice 6.0), loses some copyrighted modules, and gains open-source replacements. It's on the menu under Office and you can run the components separately.

On the downside, multimedia support for home users is weak, with MP3 support missing (there's a link to the XMMS add-in for it, though), as is any way to burn a CD. Oddly, Red Hat Linux 8.0 Personal doesn't include Real's RealOne Player either, which you'll have to download and install yourself if you want it. Again, this might be a deliberate pitch for business acceptance.

Hardware detection is better than ever and networking and Internet setup are as easy as filling in a few dialog boxes. Red Hat Linux 8.0 Personal even installs security in the form of a network firewall for Net users. It also handles dual booting with Windows for those who just want to dabble.

Red Hat Linux 8.0 Personal comes on three installation CDs, with two source CDs, a documentation CD, and a multimedia and office applications CD. The paper documentation is limited to an installation guide.

Overall, and despite the caveats, this is the most innovative and easiest to understand Linux distribution to appear yet. You really can install it and be using it to write documents, listen to CDs, watch TV or video, and use the Net within minutes of finishing the installation. Impressive, and a great introduction to Linux for new users. --Steve Patient, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid OS For the Home or Office Workstation
All of the great things about Linux in general: stability, security, and the incredible array of productivity tools, have made it into Red Hat Linux 8.0 all wrapped up in a slick new look and easy to use interface. Unfortunately, the bad things about Linux: instability of the [somewhat more obscure] programs, poor, Windows-like security out of the box, and the mind-numbingly huge array of tools, came along with it as well.

Red Hat 8.0 looks beautiful. It comes with a couple of great things for the average home user or general-work desk jockey. First off, there's Open Office 1.0.1. This is a slick, easy to use, and incredibly versatile and powerful office suite that, frankly, matches or rivals Microsoft's competing Office suite in every worthwhile category (yes - a lot of the pointless junk in MS Office that you didn't use made it to Open Office, but not all of it). It includes a Word Processor, a Spreadsheet, Math tools, and a Powerpoint-ish program that I haven't used yet. All of them work wonderfully and I've yet to have a problem with this latest version of Open Office.

Next, there's Ximian Evolution. INCREDIBLE. That's all that needs said. If you like the idea of all of the worthwhile functionality of Outlook without the instability and insecurity (and a lot of the glut), you'll LOVE Evolution. You can even hook up to an Exchange server by purchasing the necessary software seperately (at a VERY reasonable price as of the time of this writing).

However, there are down sides. Red Hat 8.0, like many other Linux distributions, comes with an absolutely mind-boggling array of packages that can be installed. Unfortunately, to this date, I have been unable to keep an installation under 800 MB. Many of the packages that are available or get installed are nothing more than duplicated work that other packages already provide. Also, the massive installation requires you to diligently track down and shut down services to improve on the security of the system.

Still, that's more than other OSes provide (Microsoft Windows), and it's far cheaper. A lot of functionality, a lot of potential, but honestly, if you want a server, get FreeBSD or OpenBSD. However, since this is the personal edition, I would whole-heartedly reccomend it to anyone looking to replace their stale, unusable Windows systems on a home computer. Thumbs up Red Hat!

5-0 out of 5 stars Closer and Closer
Red Hat's 8.0 release has the features to move Linux closer to the mainstream acceptance it has been deserving for years. The old features such as stability, security and more included applications than can be listed in this 1,000 word max review. With the Bluecurve desktop configuration, a uniform look and feel for both Gnome 2 and KDE 3 new users will find desktops similar and should cut down on people getting confused by the choices. Both are still completely customizable, giving long-time users the independence they have always enjoyed. Installation can be either a simple point and click to accept the defaults, or customizable down to individual packages. There is a lot of discussion about Red Hat removing support for the MP3 format, support can be added by simply downloading a module and installing it, but, in my opinion that is a bit like trying to get your DVD player to play the old Laser Disks, the included OGG format offer better compression and sound quality. I first upgraded my development server from RH 7.3, I was then so impressed that I just finished upgrading all of my companies machines. This review was written on a Dell Inspiron 4100 running RH 8.0

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but a few bugs...
I personaly really like this product but there are a few set backs. For one: The GUI for iptables has a bug that makes it think your firewall settings are slways high (it does update the file though so its not that big of a problem.) But there are pluses to... Remember the MS blue screens of death? I have never seen RedHat fail! It comes with alot of stuff like office apps, tux racer and countless other games, a lot of text editers, and much other stuff. If you want a cheap desktop envirement thats useful you might like it.

4-0 out of 5 stars I can use Linux at last!
I've bought Linux in the past and struggled with it and eventually removed it. Either it wasn't compatible with my hardware or was too difficult to use.

Now, however, Linux is at least easy enough to use(like Windows 95) and although I had to buy a new modem, it worked with all my PC interal hardware. I still have a scanner and digital camera that doesn't work, but I expect Logitech to produce a driver at some point for the camera.

This Linux is great! It's powerful like Unix but very much like Windows 95 in presentation.

There is a learning curve to go through to learn how to do stuff but so far I know this will be my primary new operating system. Goodbye Microsoft! Welcome Red Hat Linux!

This system comes with a lot of free software and development tools for programming and web development etc. To get this much stuff with Microsoft you would have to spend thousands of dollars.

I will never go back to $$$ Microsoft. Linux is the value oriented operating system for the users by the users. You get the source code for the system too!(Not that many of us can understand it, but ok!)

THIS IS FREEDOM FOLKS!

Macintosh wants to control their hardware too much and keep their system away from hardware they don't make. Now Microsoft wants to control our hardware and software too. Linux is the only operating system that is a viable alternative to these two companies that want to control how you use your computer.

Vote with your wallets and purses folks.

This is the new system for the 21st century. Join the open source revolution! :-)

4-0 out of 5 stars Getting to know Linux
I've been using Linux for about six months now. Red Hat 8.0 works well with my home LAN & Macintosh PPCs. The earlier versions 7.1, 7.3 used to be challenging especially undoing my WindowZ mentality. I like the way that RH8.0 smoothly configures on my Ethernet LAN. I intend to use Linux exclusively after test driving it for a few months. I don't need to reboot on every system change, only once an a while I would even have to logout. My system is dual OS'd with Windows 2000 Pro. and Grub startup. When or if I need to upgrade to RH9.0 I won't hesitate. I finally bought a Red Hat manual so you know that I've been winging it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars rockin' the old pc
okay, i'm still fairly new to the linux world, but i'm so happy with it. i've had a 200mhz/64mb ram/10gig hd computer hanging out in my closet for the last two years, because i thought it had finally seen it's last days. it was nicknamed the black box of doom, because even when it ran under win98, it was a nightmare of constant rebooting.

but i decided to give mandrake linux a whirl on it, so my wife and i wouldn't have to fight over the 800mhz dell anymore. and i have been blown away. mandrake installed with basically no problems. it didn't pick up the 3com ide network card, but did give me the option to pick it from a list during the install. other than that there were no hang ups installing it.

now that i've got it running, it's just amazing. kde runs faster on it than win2k does on a 300mhz/128mb ram computer that i use at work. i've got the gimp for image manipulation, mozilla for browsing, evolution for e-mail, and there are hundreds more included apps (everything from ftp programs to office apps to development tools). i can do more with it now than i ever could before. and coupled with my cable modem connection, it's almost like having a new computer. plus i can still use AOL's instant messaging, and i downloaded a file sharing program that uses the same protocol that morpheus uses.

and the constant crashing? gone. i've had it running for over two weeks now, without even the thought of re-booting. the only time it had a problem was when my one year old decided to play drums on the keyboard. ;)

i did try Suse 7.3 on the same system and it's also a wonderful distribution for new users, but unfortunately it had some problems with my video card, and i was too lazy to try to learn more about xfree86 to fix it, and just installed mandrake instead.

all in all, i feel it's an increadible value. i saved myself a ton of money on software and hardware that i would have needed to get a useable windows system up and running. and now i have the reliablity and freedom of linux backing me.

if microsoft's demands for new top of the line hardware and strict (money grubbing) piracy protection are growing old, i'd definately reommend the switch to linux. either mandrake or suse are wonderfual for new users.

2-0 out of 5 stars The best way to enter into the Linux world, for a beginner.
Mandrake Linux is, without a doubt, the most user-friendly, and probably least flexible, and most kiddyish, and frankly, somewhat idiotic, distribution of Linux there is.

Now, let me say that this is the way to go for a beginner, who is looking for above average security, and a good level of every-day functionality (as well as a painless installation).

That aside, I must say it's a ripoff to buy and not simply download, partially because there is a lack of decent commercial software, and partially because it's just rather bad as far as programming environments and user-control go. About as bad as Windows in the end.

If you choose on going with Linux, and don't mind a bit of kernel configuration during, or after, the installation, I'd go with Slackware, RedHat (though it has a bit more bugs), or at least SuSE. That, or get yourself any distribution of UNIX (they're all good).

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Easy to use, easy to install, easy to use, simply awesome.

Mandrake has surpassed Red Hat in their installation environment. This is the distribution that I installed in my grandmother's computer so that I can update software and maintain their machine over the network.

Highly recommended! You will not be sorry. Their network updates are very nice.

If you want a more difficult installation but a much easier software (command driven) software update tool, look into Debian Linux.

Cheers!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Linux yet.
I've been using Linux for about two years and Mandrake 8.2 is the best I've seen yet. Here is what you get with Mandrake 8.2.

Easy to setup with Mandrake's graphical installer drakx. Includes great packages such as cups print server, proftpd, postfix, Star Office 6, Real Player,
kamera, chat, and scanner software.

You can choose from 11 desktops including Gnome and KDE. You get games, multimedia, development, and a large assortment of extra printer drivers, and special
Mandrake configuration tools to get up and running pretty easy and painless.

I had Mandrake 8.2 installed in about 30 minutes, and it was near painless. It was the easiest install of any Linux distribution I have ever done.

So if you are sick of Windows, and are looking for something else try Mandrake 8.2. Even old Linux hands can enjoy 8.2.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mandrake is GOOD
Mandrake Linux 8.1 has got to be the easiest ver. of Linux to install and use. You can almost install it without touching the keyboard more than twice... Learning it is almost as simple, this is a fairly popular verison of Linux so there are quite a few books and courses on it. The ONLY major downside is that it isnt for total control freaks, while like all Linux flavors it is very powerful and you can change anything it isnt all powerful. People that want to watch everything that is happening and change everything should use Slackware.
Mandrake is very good for beginners and pros. It works very well in large operations or for just home use.
Bottomline: A very good buy. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not very ... developer friendly
I have been programming activex in NT for years. Each time I update the software, I have to reboot the server to release the object that already loaded in the memory. Even though I did a set object.close and set object = nothing, sometimes it didn't kill the process successfully. Other than that, I think NT is ok.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fairly solid
We have used this product for over 3 years and have been mostly satisfied with its performance. We are a shop that runs both a variety of UNIX platforms as well as NT 4.0. NT, while providing a nice graphical environment, still lacks much in the way of reliability and flexibility. Even for the seasoned UNIX user, NT's permissions can be some what cryptic. Record locking can be a real nightmare, often requiring the reboot of the server to release a record that has been locked. Still overall, it is a fairly solid performer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Performer
We use NT Server 4.0 now and have for about a year now. It has been a solid performer and we have very rarly had to shutdown. Usually when we do, it is because we upgraded something, added software or had hardware problems (IBM). There are a few features we would like to see such as better compatability with Win95 and a better messaging service as well as easier notes integration with Lotus Notes. But other than those things, We are pretty pleased. ... Read more
