I notice that Slackware as a saying on their site. "Slackware for the subgenius". I guess us Gentoo users are the geniuses then.

I couldn't pass that one up.

It's funny, I bought the CDs for Slackware 9 and Gentoo 1.4. I installed Gentoo and the Slackware CDs are still sitting there, never even been booted.

Later

K12LTSP is distro of the year. It is so easy to install in computer labs and so smooth, it will introduce a whole generation of students to Linux. KNOPPIX would be my second choice.

What was that again? The only DSL I have heard of is broadband stuff.

That's better. Now I can see why you had to shorten it. I'm suprised it didn't censor it.

I wish I had DSL, the broadband one.

Mepis gets my vote.

I've tried Redhat 5,6,7,9 and Fedora 1,2,3, Mandrake 10 and a number of live CD's.

Mepis (Debian made easy) justs seems to work really well.

Perhaps I should have voted for Debian? After all without Debian, there is no Mepis (no Ubuntu, no Knoppix etc etc.)

Personally I like slackware, but debian is also good.

IMHO it is unfair not to include PClinuxOS in this Poll, P8 is the best thing I ever installed on my HD.
Now I am forced to vote on the distro I used before PClinuxOS: Xandros.
As I said before, if PClinuxOS was included I would vote for PClinuxOS P8.

My 2 cents,

Xervantes
