    Flamebait: Distro of choice

    It's been awhile... what's everyone using ?

    I'm using:

    On Desktop:
    LFS 3.1 with KDE3.0 Beta 2

    On Laptop
    Windows 98SE (only to use TV-Out) / RedHat 7.2, Gnome 1.4
    Lappy will be Gentoo soon I hope.

    On OggBoxen
    None... No HD at the moment, no time to hack it.

    Mandrake. I've been using 'Drake since 7.2, and now have 8.1 on this machine. I find Mandrake to be just what I want- easy and usable out of the box with minimal fooling around. The typical standard edition comes with everything I want, and I don't have to fool around with down loading other software. It takes me less than an hour to install and configure Mandrake with my prefered window manager and apps and be completely working and ready.

    I would never claim that Mandrake is "the best" or any such nonsense, but for me, an old Mac-Head, who was dragged, kicking and screeming into the Windoze world and then snuck out the back when Bill wasn't looking, Mandrake is unbeatable.
