Hi friends, it seems like this section of MDL is sleepy. Lets talk about what distro we use. I have played with linux for about 8 years. Started with Corel and move to Mandrake(long before mandriva),then Suse, tried slackware and debian but couldnt install them, I think it was debian 2.2. Time passed and I dabbled more. Gave Ubuntu a try and Open Suse, fedora and mandriva, then tried debian again. Now for over a year I am a happy debian user. I think I have found a home with it but I am willing to explore other distros. I have heard good things about gentoo, arch,and others. I like debian because of its long history of good work and great package managment with huge repsitories. This plus the freedom, sort of an erector set for linux approach. What distro do you use and why?
