For my company I would, but I'm just now starting to learn SQL and I will have to redo a lot of forms in my database, and switching would be a year long project or more. Commiting to it on the desktop and servers at home was my first step on a long road.. I might make a different statement in a year or so.

Downloading CrunchBang now... thanks jamison20000e

Looks like it's pretty minimual, but it's worth looking into. Still want more eye-candy in my OS. Otherwise why have a great video card (Radeon HD7850) and 16GB of RAM with an Eight-core processor.

Maybe a Gui frontend is of interest also.

#! is a lot more customizable like Debian, (KDE and on,) I use it's default-DT on any older PCs I find any older and a netinst.

By the way the temperature here is 17 F with -9 to -22 F (not counting wind chills) in the forecast next Monday and only a couple feet of snow thus far, never like when I was a kid tho here in Mil-town when snow was tripped++ compared to these decades.

I've had Mint 13 KDE (based off of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) running on the living room desktop since February of 2013 with no problems at all. The kids like it, the wife likes it and no one has had any issues with crashes, freezes, errors. Just a few "how do I..." questions in the beginning.

I'm still amazed that nothing has gone wrong so far.

If I wasn't running that I'd probably go with Debian stable.

Which distro would you guys use though?

My own personal hardware would be running Arch though, this is more for the family PC, in which stability would be a bigger concern than running bleeding-edge software.


Slackware! Very stable, no problems beyond user error (a couple aesthetic bugs I dislike, but it's KDE not Slack) and very easy to learn to set up and use. It's all personal preference, almost _any_ modern version of Linux is going to be great for home use.

I use Slackware on my laptop me and my wife use. Very solid and foolproof distribution.

On my desktop however, I use LFS-SVN as my signature describes.

I hook most up with Debian. A simple copy of 3DVDs and point them to Xfce or KDE etcetera plus Synaptic. Who could ask for more?
