Haven't had any experience of any other distros (apart from RH8, briefly), but I'm getting on very nicely with Mandrake.

josh89,

That is like asking "Which make of car do you like best ??"

Different systems have various "pros & cons".

People looking for something "Windows-like" go with Red Hat or Mandrake.

People who want "bare-bones" choose Slackware or even Debian.
