    Well as far as similarity goes Mandrake is a modified Redhat so you will
    notice less of a change going that way.

    Got the same f-you-gram today - already figuring out what distro to fall
    back to but 99% of my experience has been on Redhat. No time to try them
    all....so FreeBSD/SuSE/Mandrake - what are your opinions of each?
    Flexiblity, ease of use, ease of migration, security etc.

    Hey Red Hat.. I've got a migration plan for you... it's called BSD /
