All part of the evangelism.

Last night, I got a clients machine running in some weird mode with a 
widescreen 15.4 inch screen. It handled it without a hiccup. It's quite 
impressive for a one-man distro.

I am sticking with Mandrake on my desktop though, since I know it better, and 
really, that's what separates the good from the bad. RH may work better for 
some guy who knows it, rather than him switching to something "Better" that 
he doesn't know.
