Re: [linrad] Which distros are free?
I'm a bit suspicious of Redhat myself - I personally see them as the new
Microsoft. The fact Redhat are sponsoring Fedora makes me suspicious and
good enough reason not to use that distro.
I modestly suggest that you also have a look at Debian. www.debian.org
A number of hams are Debian developers, and there's even a 'hamradio' section
in the archive. The 'sarge' version is nearing release and would be a good
place to start.
I like the Debian too, although it's not as easy to set up as Redhat. As
you say there is a lot of ham stuff. I'm using Debian on the machine I'm
sending this from.
