Opinions needed


I have about 10 distros I like out of all others. I've tried plenty and just seem to stay with these, but 10 is still a lot lol. Maybe I can get some opinions and a poll going on to see what people like nowadays of my list.

Be free to give me opinions, but only mature and facts thank you


***btw multiple choices voting option enabled***

I've always just stuck to Slackware. I'm not familiar with Mutagenix, I'll have to look that one up.

be aware that more users on the forum use slackware than those who use something else, this is due to the fact that slackware doesn't really have its own forum, whereas other distros do, look up the favorite distro polls for more info.

I share the same sentiments. This poll will definitely be biased towards Slack. I have never used some of the distros in your list, so I may check them out soon.

Not quite true - the Slackware forum on LQ is the official Slackware forum.

I have always stuck to Debian since I use linux so I would like to say debian but if you say that Kanotix = Debian, I guess I should vote for Kanotix... :-)

None of the above .. most are off-broadway type shows.

Out of your lists. I have tried, Kanotix, it's is clean but VERY buggy

Nothing else .. may be you should try Mepis, Knoppix .. pure debian, centos .. and may be even Suse .. I don't care a bit for Ubuntu .. it's a lot of paid (and orchestrated) hype ..

Gentoo;s is for anyone with time to kill . may be slack is better but I have never tried it.. it's worth listing in the top ten. Arch/vector etc. are marginal becuase they have a lot of issues.
