that's cool, there's lot's of linux desktops now on development to make it even easier than windows, have you heard about Red Hat's next project codenamed "NULL", it's a pure desktop linux targetting desktop users, hopefully we' all got the copy.

Lycoris is just another KDE, just like Lindows.

Don't get too excited here .. this is just plain Redhat distro with the nullified or neutralized theme of KDE and GNOME so that they may look and behave in a similar fashion.

I want to setup a headless (no video, kb, accessible only thru a LAN card)linux server, but am still a maotsetsong when it comes to linux. (i got a mandrake 8.2 here).



Would this be too ambitious?



Links, other info will be very much appreciated.

Gowin,

       mandrake is kewl!. in fact some reviews say redhat is better and some say mandrake is better. well, that's a matter of opinion. i've used both already and my opinion is that mandrake is better. it  can be recommended for maetsetsongs. It has friendly GUIs from configuring your hardware to networking whether it be SAMBA or NFS.

a headless linux box is easy. just configure the box's network correctly and setup sshd for remote shell connections.

but isn't the next iteration of red hat's supposed to make it easier for n00bs to pick linux up?



btw, mandrake 9.0 seems good... just remove all teh bloat. (parang windows ah.)

meron bang equivalent thread nito ng BSD for maotsetsong.



this OS seems to be interesting e. sino ba mga in-house bsd masters natin dito?

may i suggest slackware if you're looking for less-bloat.  it takes a little more effort to get it to look as good as redhat or mandrake but it's fast and slim.

slackware 8 is great for servers.. specially if you are planning to master Linux's CLI ( command line interface )  =)

Slackware 8.1, the current stable version comes with kde3 also, with a little tweaking and some windows ttf fonts it looks just as purty, or better, than redhat or mandrake.
