What's your Distro?
« on: December 08, 2004, 06:39:23 AM »

Topic says it all. What distro do you use and why?

I use Gentoo because of portage, it's package management tool. Dependancy hell is pretty much eliminated. You can run 2 or more different versions of many packages, such as gtk, gcc, etc. It has an excellent forum community where people can usually find their answer (note I say "usually"). The most important aspect is optimization, per system and per package. The logo is neat (Larry the Cow). Last but not least, Gentoo's are the cutest animals on earth. They are a breed of penguins.

I'm running Knoppix at the moment but run Mepis most of the time. I tend to run all of the Debain derived distros.

A lot of people haven't responded with *why* you use your distro. I could care less what you use.. What I'm interested in is why....

I use Slack because it is the first I used a lot of years ago with kernel 1.0.something and I'm used to it....

I tryed many desktop distros with a lot of wizards, conf tools etc...
I like wizard and conf tools when they work perfectly, but too many times they were too limited, or had bugs or... something went wrong in some way, so I prefer to have my conf files changed manually. Furthermore I feel confortable with tgz packages managed with swaret (dependancies, auto-updates, etc...)

Bye
