Thumbs up PCLinuxOS is the best

If you haven't tried PCLinuxOS Then you don't know what your missing. I'm PCLinuxOS all the way.

This was a tough choice for me - couldn't decide whether to go for Ubuntu or Slackware. I ended up flipping a coin - Slackware it is :P

PCLinuxOS for my main system, because every thing simply works and keeps on working. Kinda like the rabbit.

I think SUSE 10 is the distro of the year. It is easy to use and configure. You should also look at the package manager. I have use the RHEL, but it has disappointed me in terms of DVD play back.

Thumbs up The best distro

I have used just about every distro out there and have found that Ubuntu is by far the best. it is the one that I set all of my customers with as it is the easiest and in my view the nicest out there. I use edgy!!!!!!!!!

I tried other distros but PCLOS worked better for me "out of the box" than any of the others I tried.

Puppy missing from distro list

Hi Jeremy, I wanted to vote for Puppy in the Disto catagory (Have already voted for it in the "Live CD" part), but I use and prefer Puppy for both areas. I've tried Ubuntu, PCli9nux, Mandrivia, Suse, Fedora, you name it. Please could you add it to the list.

Many thanks

I selected PCLinux as distro of the year because it works best out of the box,I think, but I dual boot with Ubuntu Edgy. It was a hard choice they are both so good.

My reason for voting PCLOS also.

It's the only distro I've been happy with from the get-go.(and I'm a distro-glutton!)

PCLinuxOS. Up to a couple years ago I tried many distro's and settled on Mandrake. I would use Texstar's rpm's to improve it. Once PCLOS came out, I tried it and have never looked back. I play with Fedora and Ubuntu (as well as others) on occasion to see how they've come along, but PCLOS is the one I keep.
