Something else to waste some time. Just to keep a running poll on what people like to run. Give reasons why you voted for what you did and perhaps you'll earn some converts ;)

The following don't count as *nix distributions, so don't ask me to add them. I use the scientific procedure of "I really hate them for some reason" to determine this:
Mandriva/Mandrake
Linspire/Freespire
Mac/Darwin
Xandros

Fedora: it's just wonderful. It works. It does what I want it to do. I'm able to install drivers for my ATI x800 video card without a problem, my Hauppage WinTV card works on the default install, it's easy to configure to be exactly the way I want it / isn't too limited in what it'll let me do... pretty much it does everything I want besides running most windows games (i dont want to pay for cedega ^_^, wine does run some)

I don't know, what does HP-UX fall under? (It's the only Unix I've used, so by default my favorite!)

Debian "sarge" 3.1 It likes my old hardware and lack of a soundcard. All the others seem to dislike not having sound drivers installed and keep on complaining about it.
One complaint so far.. The package people seem to have been left behind with the dependencies with the 2.6 kernal..so I stick to the 2.4 for now.

You also forgot AIX, HPUX, IRIX and for the really old farts like me, VAX/VMS and Xenix. :)


Not that I could see any of those being a favorite. :)

Yeah, I guess I should have just put in a general "Unix" option. Though I did include Solaris, which is the only decent real Unix. :lol:

Apparently I can't add options now anyway, so I guess it's stuck the way it is.

OS X is based on BSD from what I understand (darwin), though I've never used it so couldn't really say for sure.

UNIX users will feel at home in Darwin, the robust BSD environment that underlies Mac OS X.
