Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

For a newbie, looking for an easy install & use ride on the
desktop, may I humbly suggest Caldera and Corel?

Subject:  Re: [thelist] New Year Resolution

Oooh, you might wish you hadn't said that....this is like asking "what kind
of car should I buy" at a car show...or asking a group of college students
"who's the best band".  Much blood has been shed, 'which Linux distro' is
the flame topic of the century, i think it even beats out Mac vs Windows.

This being said, were you to search for the "easiest" distro for a newbie, I
think that the two examples you gave would come out on top.
My personal choice is TurboLinux but Red Hat seems to be the (and I hate to
say this) 'favored child' at the moment.

Why not try one of each?
