Favorite Flavor of Linux? Answered


I have used LinuxMint, Ubuntu, Slax, and Puppy. I must say, Ubuntu is my favorite, followed by LinuxMint. What's your favorite "flavor" of Linux?

LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition). It's a little buggy, but I like it. even better if you've got Liquorix installed. I've tried the Mint main edition, Ubuntu, and openSuSE. I've wanted to try Arch Linux, but I can't for the life of me install it. Anybody know how? More importantly, is it worth the trouble?

I quite like Xubuntu. It has many of the great features of Ubuntu, but is a lighter build for older hardware. I use it on my IBM Thinkpad.
On my desktop, I currently have Vector Linux installed. I have played around with several Linux distributions on it. I am content with Vector for now.

Pardus Linux ftw, the only downside is slow download speed in the package manager(server is in Turkey). I also like Arch, and Ubuntu. Vector Linux was my first favorite though.

Update: I've now tried MacPup 5.2.8, the newest release. The desktop is a bit awkward for somebody who is used to windows, but it's very organized, and simple enough to learn. It's a pretty good OS for old computers or low-end hardware.

I was trying Ubuntu, but I dont like the new Desktop, so I switched back to my favorite: Kubuntu.

Many years ago I've been using Suse, Mandrake, Mandriva. All good, but (K)ubuntu has the most active user community and best support.

Because I haven't as yet partitioned my HD, I only use Linux (Ubuntu, Gnome interface - don't know the version) on occassion. When I get the time, I will get all that done as well as update to a much newer version. Like dkop1, I only run off a live CD when needed.

I'm running 10.04 LTS. I only run it off a live CD though, since I don't have a way to back up my windows files yet, and I can't get AutoCAD or Inventor for Linux.

Yeah...gotta go with the admittedly unsophisticated choice of Ubuntu. I've tried others, but eeeh.

(Also! The Slax site has been down for me for months - does it work for anyone else?)

the Slax site is working for me. However, I can't boot it off of the CD I burnt of it. HAd to try it on a friend's PC who already had it installed.

Never could get it to work that way. The only way I've been able to do different OS's on my laptop is through CD-Rs.

My desktop runs Ubuntu, my netbook runs UNR, and my ancient laptop that I repurposed into a server runs an older version of Puppy that still fits into 64MB of RAM and has drivers for PCMCIA network hardware. When the Raspberry Pi ships, you can probably add Debian to that list, I'm going to build a server out of one.

I've seen about the Raspberry Pi. I plan on getting one. I don't really think it'd make a good server though. But, I don't know, I've never made a server before.
