Actually Win2k/XP is pretty tied with FreeBSD in my opinion.

I see what you mean by the frustration factor, but the poster asked for quick learning, typically this means a bit painful as there is a ton of knowlege to assimilate is a short period of time. I like RedHate the least of all the OS's I use. They tweak basic things to make them unique to them. Any OS that tweaks basic things just irritates me. The cool thing about the *nix's is thier similarities, that you can port knowlege from one to the other, RedHate tries to break this, which is another reason not to learn from this platform.

RedHate does have advantages, primarily in support for devices and software. Most software will have a port to RedHate quicker than other *nix's, and they have done quite a good job with driver support "out of the box". The other major advantage is one of the same advantages Perl enjoys, a HUGE online community to glean information from. I actually have several RedHate installations, 2 of them are even withing reach at the point of writting, but they are still my least prefered flavor of OS. To each his/her own though, and just because I don't prefer it, doesn't mean I won't use it :)

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

    [stevieb]: shmem I had to do that yesterday and earlier today (C++ issues). It was only fun after I figured it all out.
    [stevieb]: it won't be long before I likely won't have much time to do a lot of coding...
    [shmem]: stevieb: in my case, it's just light controlling via some chip from the arduino family, and a couple of MPR121 sensor chips
