"Installing a highly touted Linux distro from Caldera proves
to be a good test for a newbie looking for his first Linux thrill.
Read on to find out if the installation of Caldera's OpenLinux
eDesktop 2.4 created a convert or ended in frustration."
"When looking to find an appropriate distro for my first foray
into Linux, Caldera's eDesktop was the first suggestion made by my
cohort Ken. I asked him wonderingly if this version was going to be
easy to install and use. His reply was, "That's why I recommended
it for you!". You see, he hadn't personally used this distro yet
and was intending to use me as a guinea pig. Even so, I was eager
to get started."
"My intention in setting up a Linux system was to attempt to
gauge it's value in a home computer environment. This seems to be a
popular project with a great number of people right now, and I felt
what didn't kill me could only make me stronger. The Linux mantra
of free software and super stability is quite attractive to any
hardened Windows user. I have been using Micro$oft OS variants for
the past dozen years, and I've gained a great deal of insight and
frustation using them. I was ready to branch out and experiment to
see if Linux lived up to its promises."
