Well, just because the only things I've installed so far are RH9 and FC6...

OS 'Distro of the Year' will probably turn out to have been Windows Vista---

Because Billy and the chair-throwing fat man have maybe FINALLY abused their 'customers' enough for the customers to look elsewhere. We all benefit.

It's too late to participate in the poll, but for favorite distro I put in Debian and those based off of it (DSL, etc.) for their amazing hardware recognition. The Debian Installer for Windows was also neat and unexpected, but made dual-booting easy.

SimplyMepis is my choice. I have three machines all running in SimplyMepis. Two desktops (Compaq Presario 5735 $ Dell Dimension 4100) and a laptop (Sony GRX520), all working well, all hardware recognized and working smoothly,... no problems at all..

I used to prefer Libranet as my every day system until the founder unexpectedly passed away and the distribution faded. Up until then, I had used SimplyMEPIS as my main backup to Libranet, but found it so appealing that I started using Libranet as my hacking system - Libranet had few equals, being a real Debian system with great system administration tools added. But even with its great overall characteristics, MEPIS was appealing, and when SimplyMEPIS appeared, all the more so. I now use SimplyMEPIS as my default desktop system. Now I am starting to really like Linux Mint, Kubuntu with Easy Ubuntu add ons, and Sidux, (the former Kanotix), plus, of course, good old Debian itself. But I still stick with SimplyMEPIS as my default desktop.

I never met a Linux Distro that I didn't like something about it. And among those listed I really like several of them. I am a little surprised that Freespire wasn't listed. That would be my vote for best of 2006. I am not technically savvy enough to get all the proprietary programs for the open source distros. Freespire comes with them or you can get them easily. I know you hard core open source people may pounce on me but I am just lazy and like things that work out of the box. Freespire does that!

Eh, too late to vote, but I put my in for Gentoo. If you can show me a package management system better than portage, I will bow to your ability to dig it up.

Freespire is a good distribution, but it is more recognized by consumers than hobbyists. The entire Linspire and Freespire project structure is undergoing a complete revamp - opening up the source code to the Click N Run Warehouse and pointing the software repositories to a Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Release 7.04) code base. The work is not done, but is expected to be complete this summer. In the meantime, only those interested in either the nightly builds or a year old release have used it, and that may be why it hasn't received more exposure. When they are done, this ought to be a really nice effort.
