If it was a poll for the easiest, then i would agree. It is not the best though (imho).

I know but that's not how all members will read into the question.

Didn't Xandros scoop up Freespire when they bought Linspire?

You'd be surprised, before Ubuntu became popular, Slackware won this award. I think it's only been Slackware and Ubuntu as the winners. ;)

Puppy Linux and Dreamlinux are in the Live Distribution category.

Gentoo for me. Fastest there are and no releases, just continuously up to date. My favorite command "emerge -DNu world" :)

Slackware all the way

DJOtaku 01-09-2009 11:08 AM

so hard to choose only one

I'm gonna have to go with Mandriva on this one. It was the distro I used when I was very first exposed to Linux five years ago. Easy to use, fast, and reliable. Sure, I've bounced around from SUSE (including its enterprise variants) to Ubuntu to Debian and Gentoo, and even explored the UNIX OSes a bit: FreeBSD and Solaris. But I keep coming back to Mandriva time and time again because it is built so well.
