Me too. I remember using Mandrake... it was so outraged that I'd upgraded my kernel without permission that it refused to install anything ever again. Gentoo didn't miss a beat.

I have been a slackware user, since 1992.

This does not mean slackware is "better or worse" it is simple what I have used for nearly 15 years, LOL.

MySQL What is the best Distro? Hmmm...

For me, anything with the Debian packaging system will do. I have been using Debian for quite some time now (still a newbie though Smilie), and I'm quite impressed with its improvements. I also give credit to DSL, that Darn Small Penguin really works wonders. DSL rocks! I use it as a troubleshooting tool when I fix Windoze PCs. It helps in determining whether PC problems are hardware-based or software-based. I have also tried and install Solaris, FreeBSD, and Red Hat but I kinda discontinued it because I had difficulties installing it Smilie. But I still plan on continuing to try and use them Smilie. For me, what is important is the flexibility of the kernel, a packging system that I can use well, and a good hardware/software interface that maximizes the potential of the system. Smilie

Windoze XP / Debian GNU/Linux Dual Boot
AMD Duron 700 MHz

Can anybody tell what exact Fedora is used for other than 'general' & 'desktop usage.

Is Solaris good?

I want a unix/linux OS that can teach me everything about linux and it must be the most compatible OS out there, because I'm going to buy some unix/linux books and I currently have Xubuntu 6.10 Edgy installed but I'm curious that the books I buy and the functions/commands in those books & the teachings would working with Xubuntu.

Thank you very much

I use Ubuntu and/or Kubuntu when I use GNU/Linux. I have Beryl too wherever I can, I find I'm more productive with it.
