Poll: Which Linux Distro is best


Hey everyone

I'm trying to decide which distro of linux to get for a new computer system in the near future. So i'm taking a poll to get some opinions. the three options are linspire (lindowsOS), mandrake, and SUse 9.1. Or choose "other". Consider stability, performance and speed, ease of use, compatibility with windows and with other hardware. Keep in mind that I'm a newbie into linux (i haven't even tried it out, but i need to get out of windows for sure!).

Take the time to do a search in this forum and you will see where this has been asked many, many times. Look also in the reviews section. The first thing you have on the list is DISTRIBUTIONS.

Indeed, I'll go with clarks, and close this thread.

Yet another poll with the (more or less identical)
question is not necessary ...


Cheers,
