Yeah, I know about the FC5 test X, I had downloaded and installed test 2, and then the day after they released test 3 :P - I was saying that it won't take too long for a FINAL FC5, and no more test X versions.

Cheers!

best distro

debian sid is THE distro. ive tried every distro.

if you use ubuntu you have to wait 6 months for upgrades-um firefox 1.07 is a little out of date it wants you to use the UPDATE manager and its destroying .deb compatibilty

long live pure debian!!

OpenSUSE 10 because:

- easy to use;
- Yast - i like to have all my settings and see the installed packages in just one place;
- clean and stable;
- it has that "thing"...

I used Slackware for 3 years but my youth has kind of passed and i needed something more peaceful.

I would have to admit that Xandros (a Debian-ized distro) really lives up their promisses. True the basic free distribution may not bee on par to other more complete and free distros out there (Slack, Fedora, Debian, etc), but it does indeed target the complete n00b and Windows user.

Livestradamus, it's an expression. It means it has something special that makes you love this distro.

Eg, you meet a girl and you fall in love with her because she attracts you in a misterious special way and you don't know why. "She has that thing" ...
