    My fave is above all Gentoo Linux!! I love how hands-on it is, and how it fits my system like a custom cut suit. I use it on my server and primary box! What distro do you all prefer?

    RedHat on the desktop and Debian on the server. I am more than happy with Debian, but sorta on the fence with RedHat. I tried Gentoo, I am still waiting.

    Slackware is the distro for me, I'm hearing nothing but positive feedback from gentoo users, i'm going to have to try it out sometime, when i have spare time.

    I have to say RedHat. I'm looking forward to 3.0.

    I used to really like Mandrake, but these days I'm all SuSE.

    Redhat is the only distro that I have gotten to work correctly on my laptop. I tried Slackware, but the GUI won't load. And I tried College Linux but it lloks and performs like shit. Knoppix is only cool for demo purposes.

    While I'm here :o, quick question, don't know how to word this correctly so I will just ask, Is this basically correct XWindows:Linux::Windows 3.1:dos ?

    Beat me to it, Cyber. It's like an every other day cycle now. :uh:

    RH is my favorite. Same as last week, the week before, and the week before that.

    Used to be a tie between Mandrake and SuSE, but after hearing all the hype about Gentoo I went ahead and installed it. Did a stage1 install (took forever on my poor PIII 500) but now have it just the way I like it and so far it is the 1st OS (OS not just distro) that I think has lived up to its hype (at least for me).

    To an extent. XWindows simply provides a GUI, Windows 3.1 also provided a file manager and a window manager, like Gnome, KDE, etc... do on Linux.
