Yep - one choice only, IMO!

Clearly slackware!

Debian, the distro that offers the widest range (choice) for users.

Still a dedicated member of Ubuntu. It's the one that got me into Linux and I have been loyal ever since. Is it perfect no but, it's still the one.

Debian, the universal distro.

Linux Mint

"Debian, the distro that offers the widest range (choice) for users."

i.e.,
- outdated
- really outdated
- really, really outdated
- archeological


... just kidding...

I've tried Fedora (4 years); ZorinOS (3 years); Ubuntu with Gnome classic Desktop (2 years). I've settled on Ubuntu -- its clean, flexible, fast, reliable. Cons- have to do a lot of app installs myself that don't come with package. But then tha is also one of it's Pros (I can choose!).

Debian +1

G13man 12-17-2013 11:27 AM

Ubuntu +1
 
being a user but not a programer , I Have settled on Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS , ie a long time supported OS . my complaint with Windows was they wanted me to pay for another OS every 3 to 5 years and relearn every thing and replace everything . I have been trying various flavors since 1998 and none were simple enough for me to use until 12.04.1 .. HOw easy is it , I have now got a friend serfing the net with 12.04.4 version and he loves the speed of it and the hackers have been cut out of his system . As for me , it plays DVD , youtube , AND Tradingveiw.com works . If it was not for older games , i would drop my Win98SE and XP systems . As it is , when trading , I put a lubuntu disc in these older systems to use them [ it has suppport for these older comps where as 12.04.x does not.
