Voted Arch linux
ArchLinux if I can ever get it to install properly.
Follwed the beginners guide? If you follow it word-for-word you cannot go wrong!
Thanks Oxy, installed perfectly after that.
It's the only port of call! The Arch Wiki is brilliant!
I use gentoo, arch and slack at home then goto work and use debian and ubuntu, prefer gentoo and arch most though
Oh and can we have a wm poll too, pretty please with a penguin on top
Arch Linux here. No need to go elsewhere
Kubuntu is the best, I use BackTrack a lot also. ;D
Gentoo here, because of the wonderful package manager Portage and I kept breaking my system on other DIY distributions. All in all it took me about 20 hours to install though and two more weeks to finish configuring the WM and kernel.
Arch Linux now set up...
... after 2 months of effort and a great deal of scripting. On the plus side, it's damn fast and there's nothing running on there I don't want
works fine, wiki is brilliant, updates without problems, rolling release so no upgrade disks
I've tried lots of distro's but Arch is my favourite
Gentoo = takes forever to compile evrything, often breaks on updates
Ubuntu = works ok, default install seems slow and bloated (pretty good if u want linux to be like windows)
ubuntu, might switch to mint though
Debian man here.
Should try Arch again.
Voted Gentoo, I did install Fedora for a few hours which was great because everything just seemed to work but then I missed the ease of portage and the fun (and sometimes frustration!! ) of messing with configuration files
Gentoo arch and slackware just to make bring back my old numbers to the game
I was ubuntu, but I m looking to switch as its too much of a mess around, just to connect to the internet, I know my wireless belkin isnt the most linux freindly but the older version managed to use it...
anyone got any ideas?
I want to use linux for productivity tasks mostly like CAD, graphics design. maybe a bit of programming
gentoo. It just makes sense.
It took me ~ 4 days to configure drivers, modify the kernel and get all the binaries compiled.
