Finding my favorite distro


I am so glad I have been jumping around with different distros. In my signature you can see my favorites so far and I have tried many. Gentoo is new for me but is quickly moving up. I will be trying the new cAos once I get xfce4 installed on Gentoo. I was getting frustrated and bored with the distros out there. I guess I just needed to get ones that I had more control over but also had much to offer.

I really can't blame him for telling others to move along. Most come here to help people, not look at blog type entries, which this forum is not meant to be. Perhaps you should look into setting up your own blog for such things..

instead of just outright saying "no" in my previous post, i was actually going to say: "not really. people come to LQ to get help and to share sucess stories and solutions to problems they've had with a piece of software or hardware, not to share distro preferences without any reason as to why they choose them."

but yours works too.

Your absolutley correct. LQ is only for asking questions, answering them and solving problems. Anything else has no place here unless it is in the general chat area. Since no one had any comments on the brief post I made about the distros then I see no further reason for this thread to be open any longer.

It is interesting though. How many here have spent twelve plus hours or more, when they have the time, working non stop on your computer(s)? Whether it is compiling things from scratch, emerging, or trouble shooting something that should work but for somer reason does not want to. Then you have success. You are happy about it and want to make a brief statement, to start, and go further into detail later when your eyes don't feel like they have been dragged down a unpaved road and your head is going to explode. It is also interesting to hear others comments as far as what there favorite top five distros are. Or why they do or don't like Gentoo or cAos, if they have been bored with some distros out there, if they bounce around like I do, if they like more control with a distro and setting only what they want or need on their own without the extra's that just take up space and resources, etc.....

This was a post about distros. Anywhere else I would have put it then it would have been moved here. But again, this should not be at LQ. LQ is only for asking and solving. My mistake. What was I thinking. I should be hung upsidedown and beaten with a spiked whip.

in this case, if i were you, i would continue this post, only edit the title and turn it into a distro review. compare and contrast your favorite distro and tell why you chose them (elaborate, tell in detail). talk about why you like each distro, and explain why it's a good newbie friendly distro. a 5-in-1 distro review;-)
