I would say that my favorite distro is Ubuntu. That's the distro that I started on. I'm currently running 8.10 and it's running pretty nicely.

openSUSE looks pretty cool though and they have the most current PPC build. Heh, I've got openSUSE 11 on a G4 tower and it runs pretty nicely. I just need a little bit more RAM.

Surprised way to revive an old thread

Linux Distro's sure have changed alot since this thread was first started. I use Ubuntu and Gentoo and Debian as my Linux distro's of choice.

Heh I didn't notice how old it was until after I posted. Razz

Oh wow, 2003 is when it was created. Yeah they really have changed a lot. Heh, not that I know from first hand experience as my Linux experience only started in September of 2008. Even then I started out mainly by playing around with Ubuntu Server on a rack mount server in my school's computer club's office.

Ubuntu Studio 9.10 and Fedora (for networking edu)

I also slave XP off 9.10 using Synergy and hard coded HDD access. Ubuntu sees XP hard drives as a plug in USB setup and XP allows total contol of its own disks, mouse and keyboard.

That way I can slave DAW tools (Digital Audio Workstations) on XP to LMMS and Ardour through MIDI and Audio jacks.
Adobe gets an honorable mention for the web work I do. Most collation and file manipulation is done using Linux simply because its 100 times faster then XP and easier to use with sureior tools like mass file rename, touch and command line manipulation. (eg get file xx dated now and move to this folder.

In short, most Linux distros the same, share the same bugs, fonts, artwork, etc, but incompatible with each other.

What computers run best with linux, I have heard old ones work better, but I also heard it really depends on what you want to do with Linux?
Could i run it on a macbook?
