    Recent releases of Fedora have been excellent, much better than Ubuntu.

    Thanks... I picked that one up on Distrowatch last night, but think I will probably wait until the latest version comes out of Beta, which doesn't look as if it will be too long.

    One of my favourites amongst the smaller (or not so well known) disrros at the moment is Superx, which I think has a professional look and feel to it... especially if you like Windows! :)

    Well worth a look I reckon!

    Indeed we do... a lot has changed in the world of Linux distros since the first poll in this thread, which is well over three years ago now!

    There are a lot more stable, attractive and solid offerings now available, especially from some of the smaller, or less well known organisations, which are at last starting to offer a real and useful alternative to Windows.

    We certainly do, maybe we should wait for the SteamOS release?

    Mint here - just upgraded to 17 as going to be around for a while given it's based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

    Also use LinuxLite 2.0 on a ancient device - brilliant out of the box for aging HW

    I choose Ubuntu almost always.
    If I don't use Ubuntu then comes Fedora!

    If you are looking to learn about the internals it is excellent.

    However trying to keep it up to date is just a royal pain. I did it once then deleted it.

    CentOS/Fedora/Ubuntu at home
    CentOS/RHEL at work

    Gone a bit quiet in here!

    Just got Mint 17 up and running on my main machine, don't do that much gaming these days so I'm happy to use Linux as my everyday OS. Used Debian/Ubuntu before, but Mint is just so easy to use.

    Mint here, although I've started to dabble in CentOS for purely server side stuff.

    Just being having another look at the Cinnamon version of Linux Mint 17.2 and am liking what I am seeing! :)

    Fedora 22 with the Gnome desktop also appeals.

    Brill!

    I love Linux Mint 17.2 (cos I don't play games much now) Cinnamon version x64

    :D

    1) no more worry of viruses
    2) no more annoying of Microsoft rebooting after updated (linux don't need rebooting)
    3) USB 3.0 faster than Windows 7, 10 on Linux
