I think it is Red Hat, because I know many servers which use this OS and they have been up and running for more than a year without freeze-ups or crashes.

Most luck I've had is with Fedora Core 2.  In all the years I've messed with Linux, I haven't found anything that runs 1/2 as stable as anything Microsoft offers.

I realize that with open source you are going to need to do some tweaking to get everything right--but I'm really appalled at how poor Linux runs off of a default install.  Most every distribution I've tested didn't run stable enough or long enough for me to even begin to get a handle on what the OS was all about....until I tried Fedora Core 2.

The funny thing is that I tried FC 3 when it came out---and it didn't end up working out as well as FC2.  Linux to me is laughable...I would love to try Solaris for I386 though.

--my choice isn't on there.  Red Hat is now a pay-for product and Fedora Core is the free version of Red Hat...they ARE different and each of the cores are different as well.

For example, when FC 3 came out, I decided to try that (after I had FC 2 running pretty good).  FC 3 wouldn't accept the Nvidia video driver and kernel module--and I'm not experienced enough to make that work, where FC 2 worked.

FC3 didn't want to load the new version of X Org 6.8 server....

Oh and by the way, you can use the QUOTE feature instead of using manual \"quotes.\"

I know how forums work bro.  Sometimes it's just as easy to manually quote instead of quoting someone and deleting all of the extraneous garbage.
