Distribution: Fedora on servers, Debian on PPC Mac, custom source-built for desktops
I use and prefer Linux. Unix like HP-UX and AIX is obsolete in it's current form, and so is BSD, but I especially hate FreeBSD because I remember when it wiped out the bootloader for my Fedora install on a neighbouring drive for no good reason. I had to use testdisk to recover my partitions, so you could say I have a grudge on FreeBSD.
OpenSolaris is interesting to me. Right now I'm using Debian and learning a lot. When I learn a lot, I'm planning on trying LFS again, and BLFS. I finished most of LFS before, but didn't complete it. I just want to learn a lot more (which I was planning on doing anyways) before I use it again so I'm more comfortable with what I'm doing instead of just reading the handbook. I tried FreeBSD just recently and liked it a lot but it's sort of a hassle to update and I want to stay busy with other things for the time being.
This thread is dead, but I am going to reply any ways.
I use Linux because of its support for exotic hardware. I used to do that Linux thing mentioned in the first page. It got to be a pain in the a**. I gave up after two people told me windows vista is the fastest OS ever invented. At that point I said "Who cares.". Now I use Linux now only because of Gentoo's package manager.
