Mandrake 10.1, mainly because this is the first time I've used linux at home  8o, but I think I'll probably move on to Gentoo when I feel more confident...

Fedora Core 3...long time Red Hat user, so its the obvious choice.  It's stable and easy to use, so why not?

Gentoo.

Why? One thing is portage, the package management. I used to use Debian before and just loved apt and its powers, and portage is quite similar. The reason I chose Gentoo over Debian is the support (forums, wiki, homepage) and the fact that many programs are in portage that aren't in Debian (many things not compliant to the DFSGL like mplayer etc...). And the fact that you can keep a system (quite) up to date without having to install relatively untested software (like in Debian unstable).

I use Fedora Gore 3, but I *really* prefer using solaris, especially since amule compiles in it! :D

For me, stability. I have never ever been able to crash Solaris, but linux crashes fairly easy on my computer. Besides that, the amount of recently discovered linux (kernel) vulnerabilities is not good at all. Solaris seems to be more secure IMO. For a better understanding, check this: http://www.sun.com/solutions/documents/white-papers/Solaris-Linux-Whitepaper.pdf

Maybe Solaris has some advantages over linux but the biggest disadvantage and the reason why I never would use Solaris is Sun :D (maybe the will sometimes changes there behaviour)
Sun is IMHO more evil than microsoft because they want to split/destroy the open source community. They are a wolf in sheep's clothing. The only use open source to have a chance against Microsoft and now Linux. If they would have the power of Microsoft they would do the same or more evil.
The only positive thing on Sun is OpenOffice but they only do this because without it they haven't any chance against Microsoft Office.

My first distro was Slackware 3. Since then I've tried FC3, Mandrake 10, Knoppix and Ubuntu. I'm back to using Slack-current (with 2.6 kernel) because it's not TOO user friendly. I don't like the software making all the decisions for me on how everything should be installed and configured. I'd rather make those choices myself. Swaret makes keeping my current distro current, also. (I check the changelogs daily.)
