Fedora. It is stable, versatile and reliable enough.

But thinking about good ol' days I vote for Slackware too.

32 bit: Slackware
64 bit: Slamd64 (a 64 bit Slackware version)

Why? I use Linux since the "ancient times"... Since the times of HUNDRED of loppy disks jnstead of the modern CD/DVD (ah... it was so awful when installing from the 20th floppy disk some read-error occured...) and at that time there were only few distro. One was Slackware!

And the first distro... well, you'll never forget the first distro!

And I love the "slackware" style:
- minimalistic, so the user MUST understand what he/she is doing, the user must use the brain! No strange automatism Windows-style;
- packages are, at most, as provided by programmer, no strange (and unwanted) patches;
- it's really simple to create a package.

Bye,
  Mr Hyde

Vista Home Premium.  :P

!!!!!
hehehe!  ;D multiplaform world!
If some day at future, you will join us at Tux world, you will love Compiz 3D tubes and eye candies.  ;D

Happy Vista aMuling!  ;)
Really happy to see you here!  ;)


Kubuntu Hardy AMD64 for me.
Easy! What more to say?  :D
I prefer the KDE look (windows like), than Gnome( OSX like).
As soon as I complete my transfer from Windows to Linux (almost done), I'll install AfterStep or a similar package.
It remembers me the good old days of NextStep, OS/2 and Win 3.11.  ;D
OK! Just a matter of personal taste.  :D

About the different functionality of different desktops, I believe that someone can handle them, dealing with their control panels and setting files (conf, ini, etc.).

Cheers!!!  :)

I changed from gentoo x86 32 bits to gentoo amd 64 bits.

And still fvwm-crystal. Fvwm is the only wm that let me confiure the mouse the way I like it. It is faster than every other wm, and with fvwm-crystal, you get a real fvwm based desktop.

Last but not least, the modular configuration of fvwm-crystal (even if it is not perfect, too much env variables) make it relatively easy to learn to configure fvwm and how to customize crystal. And like with fvwm, you can do whatever you want with it.

Minus of fvwm-crystal: no 3D effect. No GUI to make custom settings, you have to rtfm for that.

Plus of fvwm-crystal: no 3D effect make it very fast even with heavily loaded system. Stable, normal preferences settings can be changed on the fly directly from the menu, custom configuration capabilities not limited by a GUI but only by the imagination.
