Slackware 11. Best distro I've ever used. I find Debian based distros are too difficult to install and/or run, Fedora and Mandriva remind of Gilbert Grape's fat-ass mother with all of there bloat. Slackware Linux. I just love it.
Distribution: Mepis 3.4-3, Elive 0.5, Puppy 2.1, Gaming Linux, Windows XP all installed on 2 Hard Drives
While alot of you will say Puppy Linux is a Live Distro only, this is not the case.
I have to cast my Vote for Puppy Linux.
Not only is Puppy the Quickest Distro around but it also makes it easier to learn how Linux works.
It has the most friendly helpful forum and you may even get a reply from the Creator of Puppy himself.
I am sending this vote to you from an installed version of Puppy and have added with help from the forum alot of extra Packages.Gimp, Open Office, Opera, Qcad, amsn,xaralx, Mplayer, VLC Player, Audacity, cinepaint, realplayer, gtkpod, acrobat, gqview, xnview, drawswf and more!
Did you know Puppy plays Encryted DVD's has Winmodem support (using it now!) comes with alot of Win32 codecs as standard. Lets see Mepis, SuSe, Mandriva, Ubuntu, Fedora do that. I use to be a Mepis user but got sick of friends sending emails with attachments Mepis just didn't want to open. Not good enough.
As Puppy seems the closest to Slackware then I vote Slackware as my runner up.
My advice is keep an eye on Puppy as things are only going to get better from the coming year.
