Lightbulb would like your feedback.

I have been using linux for just under 2 months now, i must say i like it. I currently have a triple boot system with xp, mandrake 10.2, and suse 9.1. I'm thinking about formatting and just using one linux system which one should i use? I also have FC4 and red hat 9 on my laptop and main PC as well. I like how mandrake mounts my nfts drives automatically. I don't see that in suse, if you know how to do that in suse can you tell me? and with redhat you have install a ntfs driver and edit the /etc/fstab and so on. What it's really coming down to is should i continue with the triple boot?, or just concetrate on one linux distro? thanks for the feedback.

This system it is on is a AMD Duron 1.1GHZ, with 1GB of PC133 memory, 64MB ATI 7500 Radeon, and two 20 GB HD's, with one 52X CD ROM, and 8X4X32 Burner.

I like Slackware and Dropline Gnome as the desktop frills.

While I don't use it, Suse 9.3 is mighty good. Arch, Crux, Debian, Gentoo, and Slackware are my favorites (not in that order), though.

If it were me, I'd keep my WinXP around for a little while longer (just for comfort), and then my favorite (at the time) Linux distro. Since you are comfortable with triple booting, I'd use the other partitions to experiement with other Linux distros, replacing my old favorite with any new favorite as it might come along. Playing with distros is a bit of a hobby for me.
