SUSE, no doubt. Why? Because it works; it's solid, stable, cutting edge, easy to configure with many other pluses.

Being easy to configure doesn't make a distribution the best; also went to some RPM dependency hell already? :-)

Best Distro

SuSE is far and again best in my mind. Why is there no SuSE Forum?

Wow...that's SUCH an original question...I can't imagine why no one around here EVER thought to ask this before.




We really need a sarcasm tag

Browse this forum, there is a thread going on for quite some time now in why we don't have one, our policy in adding one and so on.

I was a faithful follower of redhat for a while. Right now Im using 9. I don't know about this new v3 thing. Looks like redhat is trying to get paid like Bill Gates.

1. Debian
2. Slackware
3. Mandrake

I have been using debian (sid) for a long time and I love it.
