Thread: Santa Fe Linux

    Santa Fe Linux

    I stumbled across an announcement on another Linux site about the Santa Fe Desktop distribution. Being a non-technical type person, but recognizing the value of Linux, I found this distribution to be very interesting. Does anyone have any info on this? Is it really as simple to use as it claims? Are there known glaring faults?
    I tried Linux a while back but was incredibly frustrated at the difficulty in configuring and in installing new software and the like.

    if you want something simple try Ubuntu it's the most simple distro you can use IMO another good one is SuSE.

    You can try it out, for's a live cd so there's nothing stopping you. But just use the usual new distro style caution. ALL new distros have bugs; even those based off the big 3 (Fedora, Debian, SuSE). They range from annoying to crippling. Bear this in mind when making a judgement.

    Anyway, if you're looking to get into Linux, I'd recommend Ubuntu ( ) at the drop of a hat. People are also saying good things about the latest version of Linspire.

    Yes we are

    Although for stability purposes, 4.5 has still proven a bit better. 5.0 includes the first, 2.6 Kernel, and specific KDE integrations that were not there in 4.x.

    (threw that out for completeness )

    I like SuSE for ease of use. The install was completely mindless.
