As of Oct my prefernce was with Mandrake for an tech end user system
win NT for non tech end users and *BSD for an production system. These
were the last two recomendations I made to the folks in purchasing
postions. In the places that implemented this adivse both admins and
purchasers are still happy.
Mandrake , at the time, just had the hands down better install. THey didi
a really good job of taking the RH idea, and source:)-, and fixing what
thier user base was telling them was broken.
