Has anybody ever tried this and is it any good for someone that wants to experiment a little with Linux.

Thank you jack. I knew you would be able to give me an opinion on that. Lately, you and the Geek seem to be the only ones capable to answer Linux questions. No rush - take your time.

jack, Thank you for all your efforts. Do you think that this is a good version for someone who just wants to aquaint himself with Linux? Remember, I have not yet had any real exposure to Linux and that would be my "starter set". Also, where do I find some good "starter documentation" to get myself going. When I browse thru the net, I cannot really tell good from not so good.

well most of it is good but the way i learned is just by using it and playing around with certain things. Also it is a very good distro to get you started it has a very windows like interface which will make the transition easier for you. :D

That's a lot of equipment. I have 2 here and 2 in Florida. But I can always only use one because the laptops are the wife's. And she does not like me to test things on her systems. I am only allowed to fix them when she screwed them up.

I got Fedora loaded on a USB stick. Next time, before I restart Vista (which I rarely do), I will try it out.
