Here the Red Hat fans have mostly gone to Debian. There was some interest in
SUSE until one of our "hotshots" flubbed a net install of SUSE at a LUG
meeting. They refuse to buy the distros. Or even show someone how to install
from the CD's. Our attendance at the meetings is steadily dropping and there
is a tremendous amount of resistance to change. If it isn't old traditional
Unix - it isn't accepted. Rich
