Yawn. You ain't much past a n00b yourself SqdnGuns. Imagine if I'd said the same thing about Slackware eg

"Ubuntu but I expect the Slackers are coming."

I hate it when people are belittled because of the distro they use. Ubuntu users aren't necessarily new to Linux.

For the record:
I voted Ubuntu. It really does work (usually ;) ) and that is part of my definition of a "desktop distro."

Also for the record:
I mainly use Squeeze.

I thought linux was about freedom of choice,
Not about being better then the rest, or patronizing people.

Having not run every OS above, it seems weird to vote. The question is "what's the best", not "what do you run". Maybe I'm thinking too hard. BTW I run Debian Lenny on everything, except when using a rescue OS. I'm too lazy to try everything :}
