PS: why don't YOU try to make an application to easily configure boot hw detection?
i would if i knew more programming. my knowledge of programming is only thing that is preventing me from doing it. hopefully i can learn more next semester.
PS2: sry for my probably bad english & I didn't want to attack anyone personally
you can't really appreciate adavantages or the "problems" of a linux distribution if you don't try it ...
i have tried them all except zenwalk. ya he should try several of them but if we said that one had problems or wasnt that great then he would know what ones to not bother with or maybe we would suggest other ones that a begginer would try.
this forum I think is not the right place where someone can make a comparison between more distros ..
you said: maybe some programmer will look at this thread and think "hey i should make an app that helps make configureing the detection of devices at boot etc. easier to configure and make linux better"
i agree completely that that is the aim of this forum and it is a great one but does that mean we cant ever be off topic about something. i mean he wanted some information and wasnt critical or anything. i dont see any harm in asking an completely off topic question so long as it is in hte off-the-wall forum which this isnt but had this been in the off the wall forum it would be acceptable i think. i mean we can post jokes on hte general chat section of the forum but we cant ask for general linux information?
