I wish to advocate linux and I have one small problem. If I were (theoretically speaking,) to go up to Miss Jones and say "Why not try linux?" she would respond "Which distro should I try for there are many?" "What are the differences?" and I would respond that "They have different package types and..." and that would be the end of the discussion. I mean a linux system is a linux system they all use the same kernel, the same shells, etc. So I seek to understand the differences so as to represent the various distros properly. Of course I like so many, many, many, many others could just say "Well the distro I use is the best." or "They're all great." The first may not be correct except from my point of view. The second is true enough but it's very inspecific.
I have decided to use the various distros and seek out differences but this is an imperfect way of going about this so I am additionally asking you.
I'M NOT ASKING FOR A WHATS WRONG WITH THE COMPITITION DESCUSSION!!
I'm using Open suse in case you are wondering. Not becuase it's best but because being a beginner I liked yast.

Moved from Gentoo Chat to Off the Wall. Not about Gentoo so it fits better here.

Did you have a question?

If not, were you simply stopping by to let us know about your stance and your efforts to bring about peace on Earth and global nirvana by promoting linux with every breath of your life?

If latter, I guess the answer is "Ok."
