It's been a while..since a poll has been put up in this area.
My goodness..i had to think a lot..what poll to put??.then i stumbled on this simple and obvious question missing.So here is the poll!!

Time for fireworks..feel free to bash any distro while making love with other.

Honestly..i am not eligble to vote in this poll.Becuase i have never used anything out of Redhat family.Once i tried installing Debian..but that was quite old and it didn't recognise anything on my computer.

Now a days..i am trying to get Gentoo..but it is really hard to get distros on a cd in india.(And i don't have luxury of a broadband connection.)And i am lazy also...don't want to change setup frequently.

I still say Mandrake is a good distro even though I moved onto Gentoo. Mandrake is like linux with training wheels on it. When you start its great to have the easy install and the graphical config. Then as you advance, you can shed the training wheels and do a little more by hand, but its still a beginers bike even with the training wheels off.

Ounce you get to a certian level I think you want to be using something like Gentoo, Slackware, or SuSE, a little more "hardcore" linux. The thing I love about Gentoo though is there websight. They have such wonderful guides that make the really difficult processes of building a system from stage 1 up pretty easy.

No matter how you cut it, there are certian distros that are like the BMW, Lexus, and Mecadies of linux, ounce you get up that high, its splitting hairs and a matter of personal choice and loyalty.
