A buddy of mine introduced me to RedHat Linux back in 1996, on a CD. Until then I had downloaded different flavors across 28.8/33.6 modem, a rather painful experience. After that introduction I have been a loyal follower since. I have looked to RedHat Linux for stability, features, and ease of use. Their latest release, 7.2, is perhaps the best yet.
My first version of the GNU/Linux operating system came to me via a shareware disk that I purchased from a friend of mine. That GNU/Linux version was numbered in the 0.9x series and I tired quite easily in my attempt to get the system up and running. It wasn't until I purchased a manual on Slackware Linux a couple of years later that I was able to get the system working properly and I haven't looked back since.
I'll be the first one to admit it. I haven't touched any variant of the Debian Linux distribution for a really long time. I personally could never get comfortable with the distribution. When this review was up for grabs I decided what the hell. I'd heard some good things about Progeny circulating and thought I'd give it a whirl.
