For a total novice, get Slackware, it's much nicer for new users than Red Hat. I see people trying Red Hat, hating it, then trying Slackware and loving it.
Can you briefly tell me why??? What are the key differences?
RPMs and FS layout (most applications that are pre-compiled are designed for RedHat systems)
I'm the other way round on this one.... RedHat over Slackware (Debian over RedHat mind you)
I have tried Slackware (InfoMagic) back in late 1995, but didn't find it very satisfying. Have they improved that much?
Why doesn't someone write windows95 clone for Linux, from installation, to the user interface? Is it that hard to do? User friendliness is just about the only thing Micro$oft have got right I think, and that contribution should not be discarded, but copied and further improved by Linux.
It's called QVWM if you want it - a window manager for X. Not seen anything that even comes close otherwise. Nothing much installerwise. RedHat5.2 has the "nicest" installer I've ever seen for Linux mind you... now they fixed it :-)
