    Re: What distro do you all use?

    Gentoo on my home pc.
    Fedora on my laptop.

    I like gentoo more, but I don't see it on my laptop as a worthwhile investment of my time.

    Re: What distro do you all use?

    I've been a RedHat/Fedora user all the way here - but I really must try some other distro's. Trouble is, all 3 of my current installs work just fine so I'm reluctant to play atm. Maybe I'll try something new on my laptop as it's an aging FC1 install that could do with updating.

    Gentoo for easy administration.

    Re: What distro do you all use?

    I voted for debian cuz of Mepis. I have tried several different distros, I came to like mepis better cuz it good start for a newbie like me, friendly to nvidia video cards. I will of course still try out several newer distros like suse 9.3, official debian sarge, FC4, official pclinuxos, etc to see which most comfortable, but for now, its mepis for me.

    Has to be gentoo. I tried fedora, and I wanted to vomit. I just hate the way fedora doesn't really follow any of the standards, so things usually aren't where they are supposed to be. Haven't tried any other distros, because gentoo can pretty much do anything you want, so why bother?

    Re: What distro do you all use?

    What's really nice to see is that we have such a wide and varied distribution of distro's. We're definately not a one distro forum, and that has to be a good thing IMO

    Re: What distro do you all use?

    I've tried SuSe 8, RH 9, Mandrake 10, and am currently using FC 3. Eventually I'm thinking of giving Gentoo a try.

    Forgot to mention, I do use a knoppix boot CD for system repair and recovery, although mostly for fixing Windows systems

    Re: What distro do you all use?

    I wish I could vote for more then one distro. But I choose Mandrake since it's running on 3 of my computers while I'm using Gentoo as a server at work.

    So far I've been blown away by Gentoo. The administration is so slick! I did a stage 1 install and I never bothered installing X so everything is command line. I'm doing more tricks with that PC then I've ever done on any other OS. Once I get a new box, I'm going to have Gentoo as my main distro, but hopefully, I'll have several others on it as well.

    Gentoo at home. The compile time doesn't bother me there, and I'm able to set it up
    and maintain it exactly how I like it. Gentoo is just amazing.

    Ubuntu on my laptop that I use at work. Everything just worked, right from the install. Even wireless, which always required tinkering with other distros.

    Gentoo is flexible. Ubunutu is effortless. I love being able to pick what I need for each situation. That's one of the great strengths of linux.
