In my opinion first place should be splitted between Gentoo & Slackware.

each is good enough to serve for your own needs.

Debian should take the second place.

Thanks,
Sader

P.S. I've voted for Slackware as this is the one I'm currently using & helps me study Linux...

im betting the output will resemble the hit count of distro watch, with mandrake / Suse / fedora in first place.

probably fedora.

Gentoo might be the best, but what makes it worthy of the best ditro of 2004? What did it specifically DO within those 12 months? Same goes for all of these. Don't vote for your favourite, vote for the most worthy one for the 12 months of 2004. the newest one that's made the biggest impact, the one that's improved the most etc...

this isn't a popularity contest, it's an award to the one that actually deserves it. Do all the hollywood actors deserve oscars simply because you fancy them??

That's hard for people to judge becasue most simply stick to a distro and won't try the 50 new ones that's released throughout the year. Sorta like how people proclaim Slack as the best when if they'd try Gentoo, they'd drop Slack like yesterday's newspaper.

plead guilty and point taken. i don't have a big choice - this year i only tried ubuntu and will never touch it again (god i hate apt) - but then, gentoo (& i) convicted about 8 of my friends from windows, leaving gentoo assimiliating, which, for my point of view, is a VERY good reason to vote for even if it's my favourite distro.

well I voted for slack right after the voting opened... I don't know how far it's come in the past year.. but I certainly enjoy it.. I'm currently working on Gentoo.. and i like it so far...I really like FreeBSD and it's ports.. so I think portage is fantastic..

If we are voting for which distro has done the most revolutionary stuff.. I would perhaps suggest SuSE, because of it's acquisition by Novell. And so it now includes the ability to work with several of the Novell products, which I think could be great.. If we see Netware releases capable of broad user management over linux, that would be fantastic, as I think that's one thing that Microsoft still has a great lead over linux in as far as user management. I don't particularly like Active Directory, but I think it's user management capabilities are great, and linux need needs something that can compete with that.

But is is also hard to improve on the best, Gentoo, once installed, is very nice indeed. If they get a GUI installer that can auto-detect things, Gentoo would take a big bump up. The hardest part is configing the kernel and getting the make.conf file tweaked. Once you get that, heaven.

I admit my install was easier because I used Linux for a while before I tried Gentoo. It took a couple tries before I could even get through a boot up. Looking back at Mandrake and the dependacy crap, putting it lightly, it was by far the best decision I ever made. The only exception is deciding never to use windoze. :roll:

I have a copy of Slackware, never even booted it. Unless Gentoo goes bust, likely never will. I am very happy with Gentoo. It seems to have the best of it all for me.

Also may need to note that some people are likely voting but not posting. Ther are over 1500 votes, but not that many posts.

Later
