Slackware 75.1. It runs my house, my work, my flying car, and it even runs my re-pet dog, spike. It's the only OS still running on the planet, although Wind.... is still a big hit on Jupiter (but they have to like it, Bill owns the planet).

Edit: D'oh, this poll was done 65 years ago. Did I forget to meantion that Slackware 75.1 also runs my time machine?

Where's PCLinuxOS? With a new release out last week it's better than ever! Please add it moderators so that I can add my vote.

I have to say that some liveCDs incresase Linux around the wolrd, make more visible and easy to use... Livecds like Slax, GoblinX, Morphix and Knoppix help a lot...

But, live-cd will have small chances against distros with 4Gb...

I vote in Slackware, the best distro every year and forever...

Not only can you get a bunch of Ubuntu disks (PC or Mac hardware...) for FREE. They'll even cover the postage for now! Waiting for my disks to arrive to try out on a four year old laptop.

I've explored many distros (currently on Gentoo), but so far, my fav has been Slackware.
