Re: 10 top Linux distros and the 90 others ?

And we need to reach the other three major Linux distros? Mepis, Knoppix and Damn Small Linux, even though they are forks of Debian or (K)ubuntu. Brands were established, that people did not want to crossover the line.

I really wanted to put a mepis and knoppix in there, but I didn't want to deviate too far away from last years polls or the results wouldn't mean as much for my purposes of comparison.

If DSL, Knoppix, could be included under debian, that'd be great, and I guess ... where is mepis now? under debian or ubuntu.

I had to put ubuntu by itself due to its massive popularity.

But as you say, I'd need 90 choices to get almost everybody's favorite. Big Grin

Favorite distro : Archlinux

Favorite distro : Archlinux ( not in list )
Favorite DE : KDE

trick question?

Kind of a trick question. For big servers, it's RHEL, for small servers it's Fedora, for Desktops it Ubuntu or PCLinuxOS. I don't think there is one Distro that fits every need. That's both the boon and bane of Linux (so many choices).

Fav Distro (2006)

It's been over a year since our last Favorite Linux Distribution poll, and I thought it would be interesting to find out how thing compare. If you'll notice, Ubuntu wasn't even listed on last years. Since Xandros had very little interest last year, I've replace it with Ubuntu.

Please use these categories broadly.

Please post your 'other.'

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?
