    currently in active use:

    gentoo 2007.0
    LFS 6
    ubuntu 8.04
    ubuntu 7.10
    centos 4

    I have previously used many distros, including netbsd, freebsd, openbsd, yellowdog, redhat, fedora, rhel, debian, suse, mandriva/mandrake etc.

    redhat used to be my go-to for desktops and servers. Fedora took over for desktops and rhel for servers. I then dropped rhel for centos. I began to utilize gentoo for workstations and fedora for desktops. After the first couple fedora cores I migrated desktops to gentoo. I now use ubuntu for desktops and workstations, with ubuntu lts or centos for my servers. LFS is in-use for some specialized products, educational purposes, and research into possibly using it as a basis in some embedded devices I'm working on that need something more than busybox.

    please note that i use the term 'ubuntu' very losely. In fact, I use kubuntu or xubuntu for most desktop or workstation builds. I use ubuntu server for my server builds and some workstation builds.

    also note that I don't really care for ubuntu and feel that it is quite bloated. however, it is very mainstream and has good on-going development. It's also a debian-derivitive, which i like. It also has excellent repositories available, and i love apt. portage would be a 2nd place for me.

    I currently use Ubuntu 8.04, but I have used Ubuntu 6.06, 7.04, 7.10, FC6, Fedora 7, 8, and 9, several iterations of Mandriva, and a few others previously. I use Ubuntu as the main OS for my laptop, I like it best because it is easiest to use. I have an XP server I would like to migrate to some form of Linux or other for file storage and ventrilo.

    While it may be bloated by Linux standards, it doesn't even compare to Vista's Bloat. ;)

    I still have a system at home that still runs Debian 3.0r5. I don't really use Linux much at home anymore - I had only Linux systems at home for many many years, but have moved "beyond" needing a primary Linux system at home now, as I only use my home PC for gaming and web browsing now anyway (and programming perl but I ssh into the debian system for that).

    Started using Linux in 1995 with Slackware 3.0 and a 1.6 or 1.8 Kernel (can't remember now, but I remember upgrading to 2.0 for the first time, 2.0.18, scary stuff). Stuck with Slackware (since package management sucked at the time anyway) until I found Debian (the love of my Linux life) and really have been using that ever since. Forced to use SLES and RHEL at work, prefer SLES to RHEL by a large margin but I'll take Debian over either one in a heartbeat.

    Kubuntu 8.04. Considering OpenSolaris for the home server I'm continually going to build.

    This coming from the person who sings the praises of the mother of all bloatware...Windows Vista.

    i don't sing its praises. I say stop shitting on it because it IS a good OS. Sure its bloated. That doesn't make it bad.


    Ubuntu, on the other hand, is bloated, and it doesn't really give you anything you can't get from another, lighter, distro.

    ...except all the shit preinstalled that you'd have to chase down yourself on another distro.

    I use Ubuntu when I'm not using OS X. apt-get is my best friend.

    i prefer to run a few apt commands and only install what i want. That was the entire appeal of gentoo, for me.

    Gentoo 2005.1 - 2008.0Beta
    Fedora 5-9
    Slackware 9.0 - 12.0
    CentOS 5.1
    Mepis 6 & 7
    Ubuntu 6.04+

    Oh, and many installs of FreeBSD and OpenBSD :)

    I don't use all of them at the same time, at the moment I'm using Ubuntu x64 8.04 on my desktop and Gentoo on my 2007.1 DMZ and FS boxens.

    it installs less clutter, but it's not really clean.


    i mean I fucking hate python. Yet it installs a buttload of python packages:

    python
    python-apt
    python-central
    python-gdbm
    python-gnupginterface
    python-minimal
    python-support
    python2.5
    python2.5-minimal


    And this is a *SERVER* so why the fuck does it install:

    wireless-tools

    And why the fuck do I have to manually install:

    traceroute
    linux-headers-2.6.24-16
    linux-headers-2.6.24-16-server
    build-essential

    And it's a fucking *SERVER* so why the fuck does it not install:

    openssh-client
    openssh-server






    ubuntu default package selection is absolutely retarded. They need to put other people incharge of doing a proper default selection, *OR* they could go with my original suggestion and LET ME CHOOSE DURING INSTALL.

    I prefer the Debian method of "Select minimal install" and let it install only what is needed to get the system to boot properly. Then I use apt any time I need a new package/program after that - keeps the system about as clean/minimal as it can get. Not sure how big a minimal install is in the newer versions of Debian but the last time I installed it it was somewhere around 150MB.
