Red Hat, Slackware, Debian, Novell, LFS, Mandriva, Ubuntu, Fedora - the list goes on and on...

Gentoo is pretty international, but 'officially' it is American - that is, its listing on Distrowatch names US as the origin. The thing about Gentoo fans is, they cannot stop themselves from plugging Gentoo at any and all occasions, no matter how irrelevant or inapropriate it might be...
Poor Sod: "my house just burned down and it wasn't insured!"
Gentoo Fan: "yeah, but have you tried Gentoo yet?"
Well, I spent a while going through each and every distro on DistroWatch, and I came up with the following list:
Pie Box Enterprise Linux
Project development Enlightenment verbose (Project dEv)
SmoothWall Express (formerly SmoothWall GPL)
They are all listed under the United Kingdom, except for Ubuntu which is listed as Isle of Man. However, some say Ubuntu is Spanish.
So, anyway, there is a topic about that on their forums and I'll wait to see the response.
I just checked the Ubuntu board on the topic about it, and it's from Isle of Man.
I know the founder is South African, although that doesn't make the distro South African. If say an American creates a company in Spain, it makes the company Spanish not American. It was started in Spain, and first registered in Spain, therefore is Spanish.
And since Isle of Man is British, I would class this distro as British.
