The Distribution of the Year poll has been broken into three polls this year (Server, Desktop and Live).

I propose to change "Mandriva Linux One" to just "Mandriva Linux", to include the "Free", "Flash", and other paid versions.

What?!! No Cross Linux from Scratch? ;)

I hope it will not. I tried it and found it buggy, and experienced frequent crashes. I voted for debian, which is more stable.

Of course ubuntu is more up to date, but this is what it makes it less stable

Well, no Cross Linux from Scratch so I had to vote for my second choice.

kummiliim 01-03-2008 12:15 PM

Desktop or not, Slack is still my pick.

Ubuntu i think is the simplest I've used. For just running apps, and playing games, surfing, Ubuntu's got it.

I am a SimplyMEPIS fan for every day use. It is really easy to install, or if you don't want to install it, you don't have to - it can run Live. The latest version, 7.0, uses a current but stable base. The primary backing repository comes from the stable Debian branch but it also has access to the volatile - ever changing - applications, such as Email clients and Web browsers and apps with changing media content.

SimplyMEPIS is more stable than Ubuntu current releases and arguably more stable than the Long Term Support (LTS) release as well, but with a return to Debian plus custom kernel work it provides superior hardware detection and works better than most distros with wireless devices. MEPIS is a blend between all free and pragmatic use of non free components. Free stuff is used wherever possible, but the number one goal is a stable, usable desktop and MEPIS does this as well or better than anything in the industry. Worth a ten in my informal reviews and worthy of a nominal purchase of merchandise or products from the company to support the ongoing work and support of this outstanding software. I do not work for MEPIS but I am a community member that wants to see their work recognized and promoted. I cannot think of a better general purpose desktop system, either for value or for stability.

I really think that this poll should be made using check boxes, the distros that anyone use are like childrens to everyone of us! don't make me choose from just one of my childrens! :c

Well, even when there are several that I like in that pool, I choose gentoo, I just hope that my other songs forgive me =(

Regards ;)

Must say PCLinux gets my vote.Ive tried a lot of different distros and found it to be the most stable and intuitive.
