Ask the Readers: What is Your Favorite Linux System? [Poll]

One of the nicest things about Linux is the variety and number of distributions available for people to use. This week we want to know which Linux system is your favorite.


Linux comes in an ever increasing number of distributions that provide users the opportunity to find that perfect system for their needs. If you are focused on the style or look, then you can pick from a variety of GUIs such as KDE, GNOME, and Xfce. Maybe your decision will be based on the size of the particular distribution. Is it lite-weight or does it have all kinds of extra features & software included. Perhaps you are looking for a distribution that is specifically geared towards a certain kind of computer such as a netbook. There is a little bit of something out there for everyone and the best part is the price…free.
