There are so many distrobutions of linux out there. I'm just curious what one ppl use and what one they think is the best. Also what ones are better for certain applications?

I voted for Redhat, as that is the one I have always used. I have been happy with it. I really couldn't comment on which one I like better, as I really haven't tried to use the others. I hear a lot of good things about FreeBSD possibly being more stable and secure than Redhat.

i voted for redhat also. Based off of my limited use of redhat linux, and
all the opinions of experts I have hear over the years.

I would say FreeBSD as far as *nix and slackware as far as linux (some people would be offended by FreeBSD and Darwin being called linux ,well cause they are not ) Linux is a kernel and Free BSD and Darwin are full os's they may have the same great grandfathers (Ken Thompson , and Dennis Ritchie) but they are quite different.

I voted for debian because its got some nice features, like downloading and automatically installing files...I had some problems trying to setup stuff on RedHat that had dependencies, but Debian automatically downloads all dependencies for you.

no
I actually have it on a broken computer right now.

A) I am too lazy to figure out why its not recognizing ANY of the IDE devices.
B) I am too lazy to figure out how to revert to my old linux kernel because setting it up for audio playback always @%&#! it up.
C) I should be in bed getting sleep for my regents exam tommorrow
D) All of the choices


Being like my tricky english teacher, its not really D, because who needs sleep before an exam. Its either a or b, but they both seem so likely wouldn't you choose D?

Ahh I am glad this year is over! :-D

Yes , i am in love with nix(somewhat of a masochistic tendency) . My doze install is going to see its very last boot very soon , maybe i will check out debian as i like the idea of it handling dependancies(gotta try suse too) One of the most fabulous things about FreeBSD is that you have alist of 8900~ programs and all you do if you want one is move to the directory and type "make install clean" and it fetchs the source code ,dependancies and compiles and installs, its like magic.

I voted for FreeBSD, but it is *not* Linux. Its UNIX. The poll sould be called best *NIX, or best Linux/Unix.

I also used Slackware in the past, its an excellent distribution, but I still prefer *BSD based OSes. Actually, I'm typing this on my *BSD machine right now... ^_^

I still like Slackware the best and have it in kvm(qemu-system-x86_64) . But I'm using my own that I cross complied from Slackware 32bit to 64bit a few years ago. Using it right now ;)
