Obviuosly that is a short list, but it includes all the major ones, at least all the major ones I could think off. Its hard to hate the little ones that aren't unique in any real way. Plus, I am limited to ten options. So, let the flame war begin.

Linspire - Any distribution which allows people to do day-to-day stuff as root should be burned. Not only that, but it has a stupid stupid stupid name.

I am inclined to agree on the Ubuntu front. sure, it looks nice before you llog in - But then you get Gnome. I normally try and keep clear of commenting on the KDE/Gnome divide, but Gnome really sucks. I mean, do I really want 2cm between all the icons on my desktop? NO! Do I want all my folders to open in a new window? NO!

Continuing to moan about Ubuntu, who thought that BROWN was a suitable colour for a desktop? I mean, ugh! And what's with the weird voodoo people dancing in a ring? (As kindly pointed out my best friend Harri, one of the girls on the "warty warthog" release has a nipple erection). Ubuntu would be nice if it wasnt brown, and if it used KDE. It works quite nicely, it's just a bitch to actually use (although most of that is because of Gnome).

Fedora annoys me sometimes - But only because a) There is no MPEG support (blame America, like usual) and cool.gif The package manager doesnt let you install individual libraries, only complete packages that they deem suitable for installation (I think i'm just being harsh and comparing it to Mandriva and Gentoo, both of which have excellent package managers).
