    Hi to everyone here - my first post!

    I'm a CentOS 5 user with it configured as a desktop, and a happy user at that. I only ran the (K)ubuntu live CD on this machine to test it - was impressed by the GUI but otherwise saw no reason to change.

    CentOS is very conservative, and I like that. Rock-solid and dependable. Unlike Fedora (used it before CentOS), major version updates won't come along every 24 weeks with the potential to cripple your install. Presently, I double-boot it with Server 2003. Another box double-boots XP and Windows 7, while a third is plain vanilla XP.

    What linux distro do yo

    Hi Xvedejas,

    xvedejas wrote:I have two blank CDs laying around. One is reserved for Elyssa Mint 5.0. That means I have one left. One.

    And I want to use it, and I want to use it well. I want to use it to try a Linux distribution that I have never tried before.

    Linux Distro of choice

    I have dabled with Ubuntu a couple of times.
    Ubuntu is about the easiest and a good one for the uninitaited to paly with although all that brown is a bit off-putting:(

    I am running Win7 Ulimate64Bit now (cool:cool:) and I have installed Sun's Virtual Box. In there I have installed WinXP, Ububtu, Open Solaris(not nice).


    I like the idea of using free open source software but I get bored very easily and cant be bothered trying to get to grips with issues. I also find that forums are written by uber nerds and their advice is impossible to follow.

    Looking forward to the Google OS:)

    to add to the list, mostly Debian(gnome) when i have time.

    I don't use ubuntu core at all, does alot of cludging with weird packages(see EXT4 and ubuntu), and just makes it hard to follow for me(yes they have a forum and it easy to follow). I don't care if i have the latest OS enhancements. And of course i still am a XP user dualboot.

    My choice: Kubuntu 9.10. I've installed some distro such as Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Debian. I discover that Kubuntu is the best because it's the most beautiful with KDE invironment.

    Been dabbling with Ubuntu for a few years, and since I fried my XP install, have loaded Ubuntu again.

    My first experience with Linux was with ubuntu 6.06, and an utter fail. Tried again with 8.04, learned a lot there.

    Now with 9.10 x64, and finding things a lot easier with it.

    I was dual booting Ubuntu 8.04 with Win7, to be honest though i got rid of Ubuntu in the end. I find Win7 much , much better and more pleasing to the eye. :D

    After dealing with many distros, I realized that I'll only choose a debian based distro (synaptic rules!)
    My choice for now is Ubuntu/Kubuntu, because I can find a lot of already compiled applications for it.
