Seriously, I think you should try to play with the "regular Linux"
first. Colinux is still an early beta software, and you do need some sort
of experience to tame this beast. While on the other hand, there are many Linux
distros so user friendly that to install and manage them may be even easier as
compare to maintain a Windows box. I would certainly try to install and
play with a true Linux distro, let's say Mandriva or Kubuntu since you prefer
KDE before using colinux.
Just my 2 cents.

Subject: [coLinux-users] Which
I'm inexperient in both Linux and coLinux. I installed coLinux using the
Gentoo image, thinking that I can choose the packages I really need and hence
reduce the space required (I'm using an office machine, which has very limited
hdd space). However, I read on some wiki page that Gentoo will eventually
require much more space than Debian (10GB compared with Debian's 2-3GB). Is it
By the way, I just require some developers' tools on Linux, for office
applications, I'm quite comfortable with Windows' ones. Which distribution
should I choose then? (including Mandrake, Fedora, etc.)
One more: I like KDE and hence dont want to install GNOME. If I use
Debian image, is GNOME included by default. If it is, can I uninstall
Thank you very much!
