ഞാന്‍ ഇതുവരെ ഫെഡോറ ഉപയോഗിച്ചിട്ടില്ല.
ഇപ്പോള്‍ ഉബുണ്ടുവാണുപയോഗിക്കുന്നത്.
പിന്നെ ഐടി@സ്കൂള്‍ ഗ്നു/ലിനക്സും ഉപയോഗിച്ചിരുന്നു.
ഉപയോക്തക്കളോട് ഏതുപയോഗിക്കാന്‍ പറയണം.
പിന്നെ ഗ്നു/ലിനക്സ് ഉപയോഗിക്കാന്‍ ഏത് ലാപ്‌ടോപ്പ്(ബ്രാന്‍ഡ്) നിര്‍ദ്ദേശിക്കാം?

രണ്ടും നല്ലത് തന്നെ. ഗ്നു-ലിനക്സിന് ഏത് ലാപ് ടോപ്പും ഉപയോഗിക്കാം. അത് വലിയ ഒരു പ്രശ്നമല്ല. ഉബുണ്ടു വളരെ നല്ല ഗ്നു-ലിനക്സാണ്.
