Not to be picky, well, ok, I am a picky bastard.

Those aren't versions of linux, they are distributions of linux.

And there is no way Lycoris, ELX, or College linux should make the list over Slackware, the oldest linux distribution out there, in my opinion.

But to answer you questions, I currently use Linux 2.6.4 on one of my machines and Linux 2.4.25 on the other. As far as Distrubtions, it is other and other.

Slackware, LFS and (soon to be gone) Suse.

My 2 favorites aren't in the list

I really like LFS. It's perfect to set up your own environment, you have total control and it's a great way to learn a lot about linux.

If that's (still) a little too hard or you don't want to spend the time it takes to set up LFS, Slackware is a very good pre-packaged distro. Started using Slackware about 3 months ago (Suse started to irritate me ) and I'm planning to re-install my server with Slack.

Suse was my first linux distro, back then a perfect distro to start with. I guess that right now I would start with Knoppix (use that as a rescue CD atm). If you want to use distro in a professional environment I would recommand either Suse or Red Hat, those are used most atm.

Might have read it a different way then you intended.

Ok, Linux 2.4.19, 2.4.24 (2X), 2.4.23

'Soon to be gone' as in: Not on _my_ box anymore

Suse is one of the big players in the professional world (or trying very hard), together with Red Hat.
