that doesn't seem rational, at least without a hint of Redhat's deficiencies.
we are all free to prefer any Linux distribution for our own use,
but Lynx versions sb tested on widely used platforms,
where most Lynx users will be employing them.
Redhat is a marginally profitable company, so its products can't be that bad,
& i have had zero problems with Mandrake 6.1 in  12 mth  use
& 8.0 got glowing reviews last spring (8.1 had a problem IIRC):
i have 8.0 , but haven't got round to installing it yet.
it was reported today that  46 %  Linux users in UK have Mandrake.
