Slack - no doubt. It's small, it's fast and easy to customize to do the things you want to do without the hassle of figuring out preconfigured bulked out distro's like redhat (a nightmare...)

KNOPPIX

Looking at the second post, knoppix HAS done a ot for raising public awareness of linux, here down under theres this pc magazine called Atomic and they included a cd with it on the cover, how do you think i got into linux???



EDIT:

But personally after it hooked me in I used Mandrake!

Next year they will be hidden the whole time, to eliminate others from seeing results so they create new logins so they can vote again, etc.

Remember folks, these are audited, I'd suggest if you registered several logins to vote multiple times, well, you will get caught.

Cheers.

That's cool...whatever it takes to get an accurate pole.

I'm just starting out (with Linux) and hadn't quite decided which to start with. I'm kind of leaning towards Slackware.

Have to go with Gentoo at this point. Just too fast and stable for me to change at this point.

Slackware looks interesting and is one I will surely give a try soon.
