At the moment I'm having a go of Suse 10.2, and its reminded me what a cow the migrating experience is. Although the window manager is familiar, its still pretty obvious how different this distribution is. Yast is weird.. I keep getting asked weird questions about what to do, and it is SO slow. I have to babysit it to install anything and even then it spits weird advice.
But I'm slowly getting used to its weirder package repos. I love its KDE menu.
Anyway, back to the migration issue.
I remember switching from Linux as my brother had set me up a computer and installed Fedora Core 1 on it. I used it for a bit and liked it, but was pretty confused. I remember switching back to Windows, having a ***** of a time trying to find drivers before finally making the switch to Fedora Core 2.
I eventually got used to it, using apt-get as my package tool. It was fairly quick and I always liked not having to connect to the repos to perform a task. Eventually, Fedora versions onwards, its become my baby.
I always tinker with other distros, like now, but I just find Fedora so familiar and cosy. Ubuntu really bugs me, and I love that Fedora (okay, and PCLinuxOS) actually does have the best hardware support. My video card works perfectly every time, screen res is fine.. These USED to be an issue on Fedora, but I'm amazed it is still an issue on Ubuntu.
Anyway.. just my crazy ramblings.
