Fedora 6 64bit. I seriously think it will give Ubuntu, Slackware, Debian, anything, a run for their money. Lightning Faaast..!!

I have a 64-bit Mandriva 2007 server and I am pretty happy with it. I also tried a VMWare image of SLED 10 and a VMWare image of Kubuntu. Well I did install Ubuntu desktop on Kubuntu, so it actually has both KDE and Gnome, and I installed KDE on the SLED 10 as well, so it also has both. Personally I like KDE better than Gnome, Kubuntu has a lot of packages, I will not argue with that, but as far as the graphics go, I think its a little lacking.
The search (Beagle) in SLED is really cool, and the demos of SLED that I watched, the 3D Desktop was pretty cool and that was nice of Novel to include. Although, since I was running it in VMWare I could not experience it for myself :-(. I really do not like what they did to the Gnome though, the five favorite programs and then you have to pop-up a dialog box and scroll to find any other programs, eh. The KDE in SLED I give an A, its really good.
Mandriva 2007 followed Novel's lead by including the 3D Desktop in their distro, that was awesome and I do have that running on my server.
I have tried a couple of the Suse distros (9.2 Professional, Enterprise Server, and now 10 Desktop) and always seem to stick with my Mandriva. Prior to the Novel/Microsoft deal, I would say of those three distros I would pick Mandriva for servers and Suse with KDE for the desktop, but not happy about the Novel/Microsoft deal so...

OK, I vote for "RHEL" only because I'm preparing for my RHCE exam now.

Debian is always the King, along with Slackware...two of the best distros ever!
