@antiX-Dave you should be able to vote now, think you needed to make a post or two first possibly so that they know your human?

What? No TinyCore? Tinycore is like no other.

I have a remaster that boots not one but THREE versions of "Core"-- x86_32, x86_64, and a 32 bit RT (Real time) kernel on one ISO!... 23mb for all three. Add on the ARM port too for about 7mb more.

Five commands later I am in a full X11 environment from either of these kernels.

Debian!

I had with Ubuntu when they moderated the entire email support list. I tried Mint, but as an old time user, I just didn't "like" it. So, I fled to Debian and haven't looked back. Back in the RPM days, I though Debian was full of scary Stallmanestas, but nothing is further from the truth. Their user list is absolutely top notch and they don't suffer from the over-zealous list-Nazis that I associate with Ubuntu and I refuse to sell my soul there any longer. That's just my two cents and I'm sticking to it! Ric

Thumbs up

My first few years distro hoping, plus learning, I read somewhere that more developers use Debian than any other Linuces (can't recall a source SORRY ) but at the time you picked available package lists on if you were a normal user or a developer (something like that think there was 3 choices it was almost 20 years ago) developers got way more packages offered and as a hobbies with aspirations I still want it all. Thanks to Debian + + hope you win like we all do with Linux!

Slackware took it last year but it's popular* around LQ and that's probably why?

That's because Slackware's official forum is the Slackware area here at LQ.

Ubunbu took it the two years before last year. I wasn't a member before then so don't know any further.
