Almost everyone likes to tell their chosen Linux distribution. It's like your favorite football team or music group. It's a matter of pride. Please let tuxmachines visitors and Linux Format readers know your favorite distribution by voting in our latest poll.

Polls usually need about 1000 votes to be considered even roughly valid, so I need about 250 more votes at this point. If you haven't voted yet, please consider voting now!

I am using Linux Mint 5 64 bit right now. PCLOS and elive would be close second.

I have used the above distros for about a year each; and each have their strong points. Elive is unique with its use of enlightenment and runs on almost any computer of any vintage! PCLOS does its job and doesn't get in the way...and both are FAST; PCLOS is also using the rolling release for updates, which I really prefer. But both PCLOS and elive are (almost) one person developer distros...and for me, there is some concern in that.
LinuxMint because of its Ubuntu ties is strong in hardware recognition, instant availability of restricted and non-free codecs and package availability. Mint's work on presenting Gnome in a KDE like desktop won me over, as well. However, like Ubuntu, it also holds you to almost static 6 month package versions, until the next update. And it is not as quick as the others (to me, it is slightly faster than Kubuntu.)
On a side note: I still watch and test DreamLinux and Mandriva...DreamLinux (with XFCE) for its potential and Mandriva because it is pretty and a wonderful overall package...but I am still not used to kde4...yet.
God bless
