    I was thinking about getting into Linux and was reading about this OS, what other forums other than this website would any Linux users consider good for a beginner of this OS? Thanks.

    I tend to reccomend mandrake to new users, it supports rpms which can make things a lot easier for folks that haven't had to compile their own software. Plus it comes with a lot of extra goodies (software) so that you are set to go after install.

    It also has one of the largest follomings right now, so there's no lack of support.

    Something to look into is wine, this will let you run lot of windows based software like microsoft office. Since there is no emulation it will actually operate just as fast as if the software was on a windows box.
