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.

Gentoo is groovy - I love portage, it's so much easier to use than RPM, and hasnt gone wrong yet (touch wood). I use Gentoo as a server, and mandrake for the desktops. That way I can get the server working very reliably, but maintain the desktops quickly and easily. Mandrake ControlCentre easily betas Windows Control Panel (especially the XP one, who's idea was it to split up the network config into individual connections???)

I got bored of Fedora, the package mager is completely useless, the version of openoffice they shipped in FC2 was very unreliable, and the priting support was a bit poor. If they cant make their distribution work weel out of the box, im not going to go poking around tweaking things and doing it for them. That's what I like about Gentoo, it does work out of the box, mianly because you unpack it all yourself, amking sure everything is there and making sure you aren't missing any screws.

That is quite enough furniture metaphor...
