Thumbs up Fedora rulez

People, people, we don't have to argue. Of course Fedora is the best. It has always commed to us with the newest things available (and stable). Fedora 3 (the newest) uses kernel 2.6.9 (by default), whereas Slackware uses a very old 2.4.* kernel and ofcourse the software within is very, very old. We also mustn't talk about the speed because Fedora 3 beats every other OS.

Debian is the best. Fedora is OK, I supose, but Debian beats it hands down.

Fedora's package management system really is awkward. I like to constantly install and uninstall stuff, so Debian with apt-get is the greatest!
