Mandrake 10.1

"Slackware Forever!"

At least that's what I said before giving Debian a fair shake. Sorry guys, Slackware is deleted.

Slackware 10.

It's stability, consistency and quality make it my choice for my home office environment and my commercial web servers.

This has been my first year using Linux, started with RH9, tried FC1 and went to Slackware (9.1 then 10)

All I can say is they'll have to pry Slackware from my cold, dead hands to stop me using it

Fedora. Ubuntu just struggles with the menus at the top, etc.

Depends, Mandrake is easy, Slackware is more Linux-like

Catering to newbies like me. Distros like MandrakeLinux are what draws many new creative people to the world of open source, and keeps Linux as available, stable, powerful, fast, and secure as it is.
