    Default Debian to Mepis and maybe back again.

    Hello Forum!

    I have started out on a Linux journey. I have a very old ChemBook laptop computer that had had Windows 95 on it. The world (the on-line world, in particular) had advanced to the point where this laptop was really no longer useful. So I had been thinking that this was a good chance to start learning Linux.

    Then a project had developed at work where some other programmers had decided to start using Debian. So I started attempting to install Debian. This did not go very smoothly.

    The latest version of Debian (Etch) did not agree immediately with my video hardware. I struggled with this for a while and eventually decided to give Mepis a shot. This worked.

    Now I am thinking that once I get some other hardware issue resolved I might switch again after I learn more about Linux.

    So this is where I am now. Any suggestions?
