    Ubuntu, though I have tried openSUSE before. Gentoo is in the planning. :)

    @ CD : Distribution. In other words, what build of linux are you using.

    I'm thinking about getting another machine just to play with CentOS. It's been a long time since I've played with any flavor of 'Nix.

    The computer science computer here at my university run Fedora 13, so I get another flavor to play with. I have to say, we have way too many terminal environments to choose from (like 6). Anyway, the school is kind enough to let us SSH into the computers after hours so we can complete our homework, do projects, etc.

    Ubuntu x64, pretty stable and easy to use, I'm use to debian packages and GNOME interface. I'm planning on using openSUSE to experience kde and rpm more

    I wish Ubuntu had a proper support so I could do my gaming on it full time. Looked into virtualisation with Windows ontop but proper 3D support hasnt been implemented that is good enough for intensive games like BFBC2 etc. Correct me if I'm wrong because I really want to make a move to Linux but this nagging issue stops me.

    Don't forget that virtualisation ensures you cant asign all your video memory to the virtual machine. Just install Windows, and Ubuntu beside it (though not via Wubi, but by putting in the Ubuntu cd, rebooting and starting up from the Ubuntu cd).

    So effectively you are recommending that I create a partition.

    Sounds like a good idea but its annoying having to juggle two operating systems, it would be good to be able to do everything on one OS. Its stuff like this which makes me select Microsoft.

    Its like whats the point browsing the web and doing worrk on Linux, just to reboot and game on Windows. I may as well just browse the web, do my work and play games on Windows.

    I use to do some Linux programming and I did it on Centos.
    I kept copies of Fedora, Mandriva, Debian, Red Hat and others to test on.

    Now I'm running 3 rigs with Ubuntu 10.04 to crunch and fold on.
