I got an itch to do something tonight, so I created a nice llitte 2GB partition on my old Win 98 machine and installed Red Hat 7.1. I know it’s not the latest version but it’s the one I’ve had laying around for a long time, meaning to get it installed. The installation was fairly easy, mostly because the box is a generic white-box PC, so I could just choose generic drivers and get it working. I booted into Gnome and immediately thought, “wow there’s going to be quite a lot to learn before this becomes as comfortable as Windows.”
But it’s a start, and, more importantly, it’s something new to learn. That’s always fun!
I suppose the first thing to do is find necessary OS updates.
