    I was just wondering what everyones favorite version of Linux is and why. I myself am partial to SuSE 7.0. It is easy to install and YaST makes the installation of software a breeze! I also love the KDE2.0 Beta (time to download the final )

    I like SuSe as well Not sure why, its not the only one I've used (I've used RedHat and Caldera as well) but it seems to stand out as the best

    I've only used Mandrake..don't like it too much though I'll probably try SuSE.

    RedHat 6.2, never had any problems with it and it makes a nice web server. I've got SuSE 7 but it flat out refuses to install if I use Yast2 to set it up, so at the moment I don't run Linux at home (I did install it with Yast1 but then seen as my Hard Disk config is strange Lilo didn't like it and kept freezing).

    Red Hat Linux 6.1, but I plan on either getting Red Hat Linux 7 or SuSe. I have linux on an old computer dual booting with Windows 95. It sucks

    Hi,

    My favourite versions of Linux is Mandrake. I would also say that SuSe and Red Hat are really good aswell although I don't have any versions of Linux on my computer at all at the moment.

    I ran TurboLinux for a while, it's OK, not the greatest Ive ever used... I stick with Redhat 6.2.
