I am wondering what people run on thier personal home machines for doing things like e-mail, web surfing, chat, ect... I know a lot of you use linux for servers and database and all that jazz, which its great for, but I wonder what people use for their primary workstations.

I think the first linux you try is the one you stick with personally. I tried Suse 8.2 pro for my first desktop and to this day I've tried more linux distro's then I can count but I still go back to the tried and true suse. I also run windows XP sp2 for all the games and apps I don't want to find the linux version of. it's just easier

Gentoo ROCKS!!!!! Go and emerge the world
