    Many of us change our distros from time to time so I think a new poll is in order. This poll is more organized and covers less variants while including all versions and variations of distros. If you are unsure which main branch your distro is based on check www.distrowatch.com

    You are allowed to choose more than one.

    In all Honesty I'm just getting the hang of Debian distro's and I'm not likely to switch around.

    hmmm, why the other thread closed?
    I use sabayon for awhile, nice distro.
    Been dual booting with gentoo for a couple years. Is also a great os.
    Main problem I have with gentoo, If it is not working right...is my fault :)

    Redhat. CentOS mostly, and justed started playing around with ClearOS.

    Had used Ubuntu/Ubuntu Studio for a little time, but right now it's only on the kid's computer.

    Slackware under VMWare player (win 7 as main OS)
    OpenSuse 11.3, Linux Mint Debian Edition on my notebook (multiboot with win 7).

    Linux Mint Debian Edition looks really good: based on debian testing, it has great hw recognition, flash player and codecs already installed, and wireless connection works flawlessly (broadcom BCM4312 with broadcom-sta native linux driver).
    Give it a try if u can...

    Well, I was gonna make a wise crack about using Solaris, for his boyish smile or something similar.

    I dabble with Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint and OpenSolaris from time to time.
     
    Solaris17 says thanks.

    I didn't click your link because it could be a keylogger.

    At least, that's what the WoW forums taught me.

    Just started using Linux Mint Xfce edition, loving it. Never really used linux before, but if I didn't game on my pc I'd definitely use mint 24/7. Getting the hang of the terminal, thank god for all the tutorials and stuff online xD

    Trying Linux for the first time. I'm running Ubuntu (Debian) as a second OS next to Windows 7.

    Just trying to get to know Linux more.

    CentOS 5.5, first time to really play around with it. Cent OS is a "enterprise" version of red hat.

    Not very impressed with your list :(

    Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, & Debian. Tried Fedora, but decided that I prefer deb-based distros

    Currently using Ubuntu 10.04, since shortly also Aptosid with KDE lite and I am trying to get Gentoo installed. So I selected Debian and Gentoo.

    Kuntu, Xubuntu and Ubuntu are basicly the same, only the DE differs. Basicly they are the same fork of Debian Sid, only with different names because n00bs tend to struggle with what DE they use when asking assistance (and they prefer clicking buttons to entering commands, hence Canonical decided to do it that way).

    Arch Linux for a little while now. I had the basics down pretty well, but I wanted to get to know a bit more of "in-depth" stuff, I guess. Arch seemed like a good place to go to learn once I had gotten the basics down with Ubuntu and such.
