what's your favorite linux distribution?

Posted 12 January 2010 - 02:32 PM

I'm considering installing Linux on an external hard drive of mine, the only distro i have ever used is SuSE 10, I was wondering what you guys think the best distribution is. or even if you like Linux.

Don't you think this should be in the Cubicle Corner section?

OT: Fedora - But I don't use Linux that much anymore.

Ubuntu is decent for first-time linux users because it handles a lot of configuration type stuff for you (especially package management). I am looking at messing around with Arch Linux which is a minimalist distribution.

I have experience with RedHat, SuSe, Fedora, and Gentoo. I like SuSe the most.

Ubuntu is great for someone who wants to use Linux so that they can say that they use Linux. I would say it's good for very little else.

Ok, sorry.

It's wonderful for booting up, mindlessly wandering the web, viewing j00t00b & FaceBook access, checking email, & all sorts of wonderful 2.0 lifestyle items with extremely little to no overhead.

What does all this mean? Just stick to VVindows.

I use Ubuntu, but I actually rarely use any of the built in "point and click" stuff that no2 keeps going on about. I agree, it is great for first time Linux users or veterans because it provides the tools to do both. However, I want to try Fedora at some point...
