Xandros 4.1 Premium.

Started with Xan 3.0 and have no reason to switch as 4.1 provides a complete web access/file mgmt toolbox for my purposes. Not a toy or religious affiliation. Just a toolbox.

Recently checked out bunch of other distros for the heck of it and SuSe 10.1 is truly excellent and if for some reason Xandros loses it's allure that's where I'll go next. Currently too busy for the distro shuffle game so I'm sticking with the familiar.

Zenwalk sure is nice too. Wish this was "Top 3" favorites....

PCLinuxOS
OpenSuse 10.1 was in the running, but it had too many issues. OpenSuse 10.2 came out to late for 2006 for voting.

So my Best Linux OS is by far PCLOS 0.93a Big Daddy

monitor resolution in *ubuntus

Speaking of *ubuntu(s), someone asked about monitor resolution. That was a problem when I tried Kubuntu over a year ago and, according to several accounts I've seen recently, is still a problem. Not one that other distros have.

Now they have another of the basics wrong - the "partitioner" on the installer does not recognise Linux partitions. Again, other distros do not have that problem.

Why is it (there is really only one distro) so popular?

Because it pretty much takes no effort and no research (pretty much no brain...) to install. But like you said, when theres an issue, its a bitch to solve because you have _no_ clue whats gong on under the hood...

It is a "branch" of the ubuntu project. You could vote for that

I voted SUSE. I Think it is the most professional Linux distribution.

LOVE Ubuntu!

Ubuntu is easy to install, easy to learn, easy to use, and 100% reliable. I have no reason to try anything else.

I will always love Debian. I can't find anything bad about it. Sure their release cycle is a little slow but it's damn stable. Can't beat that.

Man on man hard decision. I guess I'll have to go with FC6 although I just installed Kubuntu 64 bit on a notebook that I couldn't seem to get anything else to work as well.

Hello,

I love Slackware. I use Fedora too, and it is my number two choice.

Smile Kubuntu

Kubuntu is what I'm using right now.

Mandriva 2007 is what I used most of the year, but once Kubuntu was loaded, Mandriva is history.
