PCLinuxOS is my favorite. i tested many distros, but PCLinuxOS stopped me.

thats why its called "the distro hopper stopper!"

I love the balance PCLinuxOS has found. The packages are very up to date, but never included until they have been thoroughly tested and found ready. It's great for my work computer - a computer that needs to work reliably every day. It has great hardware recognition, and lots of workable configuration tools which make it very easy to get working.

I doesn't give me enough problems to be a good fiddling distro, so I always keep a spare partition to try out other distros. I do love the whole Linux landscape, but for a computer I need to rely on, PCLinuxOS is the best I've found, and I've tried quite a few!

Smile PCLinuxOS

I tried many and liked many but PCLinuxOS is my distro hopper stopper. I like its polish, long term upgrade stability, the config tools and the forums.

For years I held true to Mandrake/mandriva, but their 2007 release was just too much. I have now joined the ranks of PCLinuxOS.

Too bad Vector isn't in there; that would be my choice. So if y'all count write-in votes, that's my write-in.
