Yes sir

I believe there are millions of novice computer users out there that want to know what all the chatter is about. Curiosity is compelling people to try linux. I believe the same is true about blogs and websites. I include myself.

I installed Mepis along side my winxp. I have to say it was a struggle. If I was to make a guess, half of those installing linux will stop at the partitioning step during the install. This is the area the linux distro's should focus on. Hardware drivers should be the next, or how about both at the same time. Of course manufacture's of these devices have to cooperate more.

As far as evaluating various distro's the above issues will need to be addressed.
Your commitment to do these grueling tasks is also very commendable. Thanks
