    If you are running with multiple flavors please choose the one you feel you use the most and are the most comfortable working with in a production environment.

    I like Ubuntu and it's what I have to work with the most. I like Debian as well, but I don't use it nearly as often.

    I mainly use W7 for studies and gaming, but if I use Linux it currently is mainly in order to, let's say, "figure certain things out". Hence Gentoo, especially since summer has started I got the time for that, lol.

    Started with Ubuntu, because it was said to be easy to use.

    These days I don't fiddle enough with Linux to bother trying others.

    (Damn incompatibility of Linux and my A75 Bclk overclock. :S)

    I typically use Ubuntu and/or Debian on machines for running game servers or personally for distributed computing on older ones that only use the CPU. Both seem to be fairly easy to use and stable.

    Yea, I figured those two would be the popular ones, but It's great to see the others being used as well. "Olivia" (Mint - 15) looks good. :toast: I was hoping to see someone using RedHat.

    I use RedHat at work but didn't choose it only because CentOS is free.

    I am currently on a horribly ræped Ubuntu installation. As soon as it fails I will either: install Mint OR install Gentoo [no memetic joke intended].
    I install Mint on various other computers I use and to my relatives (I converted a lot of people to the way of the *nix, lol. They often thank me for showing *nix to them.). :roll:


    Whaddya mean?

    Currently have on my desktop Fedora and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS along with Win 7. Really liking Ubuntu and configured it quite a bit for my use. Also i like that Steam is supported as well.
    Ive been meaning to mess with the other distros on the list but i barely have time to do so. Ugh

    I ran Mint for a while and ended up going back to Windows 8. Linux IMO has a LONG way to go before its user friendly enough for Joe Sixpack. However I hope it does some day. It was cool to mess with.

    This is not a thread to discuss why you do or don't like Linux or Windows. The next time I come in here, and have to clean this thread I'll give out infractions. Have a nice day! :toast:
