There is no Best Linux OS. Linux is not many operating systems. Linux is one operating system. The different flavors are called distributions; and they are just different ways to setup GNU/Linux and Open Source programs that it runs. Your question should be corrected to: What is your favorite Linux "DISTRIBUTION".

You've already said that. You've even got a thread in the Slackware forum that hasn't been followed up in a week..

I compared different distributions,
they have their own unique features,
i am quite undecided.
Basically Opensuse and Mandriva are very useful to me.

Have you tried Ubuntu Ultimate Edition? It's exactly like Ubuntu but has tons more software on the DVD.

The best DISTRO is the one that suit you need most. If one distro can't give you comfort zone, than that distro is not for you. Even though somebody feels OK and the review said that the distro is good.

Many things that must be taken as consideration. And that is a PERSONAL taste...

You have a choice of environments or desktop managers when using Slackware. KDE happens to be one of the choices.

BTW, I've never heard of a KDE Linux. KDE is a environment while Linux is the kernel. If you had said 'KDE based Gnu/Linux' then that would mean a distribution that uses KDE. Too many use generic 'Linux' to cover the meaning for Gnu/Linux. You might think it's nit picking but it's not. Proper terminology does help everyone when communicating.

Slackware is a great, great distro.

But since you have a slow connection to the internet, a slackware DVD will take eons to download unless you buy it or find someone who has a fast internet connection.

Since you already have some experience with linux, all those questions you have whether this has that will be answered in that diistro. if not, you just install it.

I am using OPENSUSE 11.3 32 bit,
it is very very good because:
1)easy to install, can select all languages and packages i need
2)easy to update / upgrade software with Yast, repositories is easy to set.
3)detect and install correctly my grahics driver
4)easy to setup wireless
5)Got all softwares i needed.

My perfect choise is Opensuse.
