Fedora is the best.

what i like about Fedora that it's very customaizble from inside. Fedora have been a great desktop computer for my personal use and it proved that it's a great server also. some DISRTOS are running toward being a desktop machines only but they forgot that on of the beautifull things about linux is that it's a command line OS in the first place with a little bit of dektop funcationality. i don't like the idea of making another WINDOWS like LINUX system.

So far I like SuSe best. I'm still trying out other distributions though, so my favorite distribution might be a different one next time.

I've been a Fedora Core user for about 2 years...but with fc3 and fc4 they let me my favourite all time distro is Slackware...I use it as a desktop OS and I'm amazed of it's stability...I know that if I had to come up with a server or something, my one and only options would be Slackware....Slackware rules guys
