Computer

difficult to say. i am not really a linux guy, but have to use it from time to time. started with SuSE & RH on our servers, and on my desktop i used Debian and Gentoo, right now i am using Ubuntu cause everything works without much touching. to be honest, the nice things on linux are the GNU environments, so what i am really waiting for is a good, stable Nexenta OS version... Linux

regards PRESSY

No offence but FreeBSD is NOT a Linux distro. It's an OS altogether. There's FreeBSD just like there's GNU/Linux or there's Solaris...

This being said my favourite distro for a desktop would be Ubuntu.
For a server i'd go for Debian.

I prefer SuSe. Mainly because that's what we run here and that's what I know the best...

A valid point. I removed the option...no one had voted for it anyway. And while I was editing the poll, I went ahead and changed the names of Lindows and Mandrake to their current names.

I love certain distros for certain uses.

Knoppix is awsome for recovering data and such on my clients Windoze boxes

SuSE ran great on my old laptop (Omnibook with a PIII in it) where as Mandrake ran better on my old Dell (PII).

FreeBSD (while it's not a Linux) WOULD be my favorite if I could get it to run on ANY laptop!!!! Linux

I learned the basics of unix, like the command line and scripting on Linux, but haven't worked on Linux in the last couple of years, being a Sun and HP admin.
I got a new laptop on saturday (HP-nx6110) and decided to make it dual-boot with Linux and XP. Downloaded the iso for Ubuntu yesterday, and installed it today... the harddisk repartition was smooth and very fast. And the auto. portion of the install went through in just 20 minutes or so!
And it works just fine... gets my vote.
