    Would it be a good Idea to use Lindows for the OS in my File Server and Print Server ??

    I was going to use Windows 2000 Server but would like to try and avoid the windows route if at all posible .. And I figured since Lindows is a unix it would work out pretty well.

    So would it be a good idea ?? I know I could use another linus based system, but I read and heard that lindows is easier to set up ..

    it's not a unix, it's a linux, and a ****ty one at that... it designed for the desktop, not for serving.

    just stick with a core linux distro or a BSD if you want to avoid windows...

    Well, I wouldn't recommend Lindows. But if you want some n00b friendly Linux I suggest you try Fedora or Mandrake. I'm running Fedora myself.

    Thanx for the info .. I am not new to linux, I been trying to learn Red Hat. I just thought Lindows would be easier to use..

    if you've been "trying to learn redhat" then you are indeed new to linux.

    Fedora (old RedHat) is probably as easy as i gets. :)
