I often read articles in this online magazine and Is Linux Right For You? (http://www.pcworld.com/resource/article/0,aid,15745,pg,2,00.asp) is very good and guess what is base in RH. This article is intended for those wanting to jump in high waters.....so have fun. All of us that are here did. :D

fluxbox is weird (very clean & neat though)... Gnome I can do.

Is Linux right for me? You bet it is! While I can't say it does everything I want it to do it does most things and for me that will do just fine for right now. I see Linux as a road I've chosen to travel. It's been fun and enlighting road I'm on. It gives me a big kick when I get a program working correctly. But I guess that says someting about me and maybe other Linux users. To paraphrase an election phrase, "It the programing, stupid!". Yes, just learning and poking around is fun in itself. Is Linux right for me? A resounding YES for me.

From 'Is Linux right for You?' to DEs/WMs? I might as well jump on the bandwagon. Gnome forever! The WM are not full bodied enough for my taste.
