Slackware, because it's simple, fast, have no freaky dependences in packages.

My Distro FC4
« Reply #31 on: August 09, 2005, 07:33:51 AM »

I'm currently using FC4 because I have used Fedora the most and find it easiest for that reason alone.

I've also tried Suse 9.2, Solaris10, Ubuntu and Knoppix.  All were sufficiently different to Fedora to make even the simplest of tasks difficult for me.  Since I've got little spare time and no interest in learning a heap of new crap just to do what I can already do easily elsewhere, I've always reverted back to what I can use effortlessly.  I know that sounds lazy but when you're a lowly peon being crushed under John Howard's Industrial Retaliations machine, you don't have much time for yourself, your wife , your children or your mistress (computer).

Amusing the self-deprecating shamed approach people seem to take when "admitting" to using FC4.  Come on guys, do we need a Fedora Pride march or something?   :D

Mandriva 2005LE.

Because Mandrake 7.1 was my first distro (5 years ago, go figure  :rolleyes:), I tried all of the releases, tried Suse, RedHat, Gentoo, Slackware, Debian, (K)ubuntu (Hmmm, not bad at all), and came back to Mandrake/Mandriva, because I'm lazy, and mainly because I know it well, so I can tweak the scripts a bit  8o

Xaignar,

I see you use Arch now. What are your impressions? I am thinking about a change here.

Cheers!

I use Debian Stable (currently Sarge), because stability is more important for me than having the newest versions of software (exception: aMule ;).

And of course I do not use a commercial distribution like SuSE or Mandrake for example, because I do not want to be dependent of intransparent marketing strategies.

Been using linux for over 10 years... Slack, RedHat, LFS and Suse.
For the last 2 years maybe, I'm a gentoo user. Cause I can define how I want it to be copiled and more optimization.

I can too on my debian AMD64.

I want it:

a) Compiled with default options
b) Compiled for AMD64.

There, done!

When I was at Uni (7-10 years ago) I used  Slackware for the sole purpose of running a Quakeworld server.

About 2 weeks ago I installed Caos - www.caoslinux.org - not a very popular distro, but its quite up to date and stable and has everything I need and has one big bonus - one of my best friends uses it at home and work (and does packaging and bug fixing for the distro), so I get 1st class support from him.

Cheers, Nick
