Back to work

Well, I finally went to work today after a little 10 month vacation.

Today was my first day with L3 in Greenville as a software engineer. I think it's going to be a pretty damn cool job. I'm going to be working in C++ (which is a good thing, considering that's what I know the most), but... it'll be on a Linux system.

I have nothing against Linux, but I'm just totally not used to using it. I tried to find Red Hat somewhere to download (it's what we're using at work) just so I could run it at home and sort of get familiar with it again, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I thought the whole point of Linux was being free, but apparently they charge for Red Hat now?

I guess this is what I get for not being one of the "cool" computer kids who uses nothing but Linux...

Re: Back to work

Actually, I saw that site. They "have" it until you try clicking the links.

EDIT: Nevermind, I clicked Disc 2 and it took me to an FTP directory with all of them...

Now I just gotta figure out how to install the thing.

EDIT AGAIN: Just had to add how much I love cable internet. 800 kb/s downloads kick ***.

Re: Back to work

Question, don't I also need to also partition my hard-drive and run some program that will allow me to do a selective boot-up? I want to keep Windows as well (of course like and stuff).

Re: Back to work

There is no updated free Red Hat

Red Hat does support the Fedora Project, which is what I recommend you download. I know my way around Red Hat Enterprise since that is what this website is hosted on. If you have any questions lemme know I have run Fedora on a system here before. I know the basics.

Fedora Project, sponsored by Red Hat

If you want to run both I suggest reformating windows and setting up a partition through windows xp to dedicated half the harddrive to windows xp and leave the rest for Linux when you install it.

Re: Back to work

Basically, I just need to get familiar with the commands and stuff (using KShell). I decided I'm not going to mess with installing it though. I'd have to do more moving stuff around back and forth between hard-drives to set up the partitions than I really feel like doing.

I'm sure I'll get used to it just from using it at work pretty quick. I know all the basic stuff anyway.

Re: Back to work

I am planning to buy a cheap used laptop here soon to run linux on. Fedora Core to be exact. I need to learn everything I can about it.
