Choosing a Linux Distro

What do you guys prefer in Linux? Mandrake or Redhat. And what has more goodies and looks better?

Well, since Red Hat has abandoned the free Linux portion, I would reccomend against them, although I have been a diehard Red Hat user since I began using Linux at Red Hat version 6. I will also continue to use Red Hat until I find time to get adjusted to something else.

Reasons I closed this thread:

1. Been asked way too many times already.
2. We really don't yet need another thread discussing this when we have dozens upon dozens already existing on this forum.
3. Wrong forum, more suitable in the Distribution forum.
4. We have stickies even to help you choose the distro best for you in the Distribution forum.

If you feel these reasons aren't justified in closing this thread and contributing to the others that we have, feel free to email me to let me know otherwise.
