Which Linux distribution to use.

       I have been a Red Hat fan from the beginning. Red Hat 7 was the first distribution I used in the college and I am a kind of faithful to things which
I use for the first time and which satisfied my needs. Its like first impression
is the last impression. So I used Red Hat 7 , 8 , 9, Fedora Core 1, 2 , 3, 4, 5
and 6. And finally I have shifted to Ubuntu. So I have used Ubuntu 6, 7.10.
        Frankly speaking there is not much of a difference between the distri-
butions. The only problem I found with RedHat was that every time you
have a new device to work with you will have to download and compile the
drivers yourself which may or may not work depending upon your  luck.
With Ubuntu life if simple. You will get whatever you want only thing it
needs is an internet connection and it will search for and download things
by itself. I have seen people using Debian. I found it more like Ubuntu. Suse!!
Please don't talk about it. I just hate the name. I haven't used it but still I
hate the name for some reason. Centos is more like RedHat Enterprise Linux.
It is a good alternative if you are a RedHat fan. Not used any other Linux.
Have heard that OpenSuse is also very good choice.
        So my final word is that if you have a good internet connection go for
latest Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon. Its amazing and you would definitly like it in
every sense , its looks, feels, ease of use etc. If you are new to Linux than
go for Ubuntu. For more info go to

The Beginning...

Just to introduce myself...
           I am not the one who is writing this blog or may be I am writing it on
behalf of someone else. Someone who as helped me reach here. 
What is this blog about...
           This blog is mainly about computers. I will write about small things
about computers (hardware, software and any other thing related to
computers). You  will  find these small things really useful and helpful for 
you as a user of computer.
I learnt these things by my own use of computer, by seeing others using
the computer or by searching on Internet.  This may be a simple task like
installing Linux operating system in various ways and may be as complex
as writing a kernel level module. And yes, this is not a 
Linux blog (though most of the stuff it contains will be based on Linux) 
this is a computers blog. So I will talk about Linux and windows both and 
hardware off course. So this is the beginning of a new school :)...  Excuse
my poor English its not my mother tongue.
