When I first started Linux, I ran Mandrake 9.2, today I still have a small partition devoted to Mandrake (now at 10). Granted I use it rarely, but Mandrake gave me such a wonderful induction into the world of linux, i would feel guilty deleting it. Just out of curiosity, does anyone have a particular affinity to a distro that they will never (or never have) lost? One special one that they will never delete?

I found gentoo...and there's been nothing since. I'll be buried with my Gentoo 1.4 LiveCD."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

dont get me wrong, i have distro add, untill gentoo, i installed over 100cd's worth of distros, i just kept hopping from one to another searching for my soul mate....then i found it, but i just wondered if anyone kept a little space, (mine is a 1.7g partition on a 240g raid) for that special first one, it took my linux virginity, and that will always be important to me.

cant say i have done that but i personally will never ever leave slackware i have decided that it is the distro that is right for me and will never leave. i really didnt learn much about linux from any of the other distros except about setting up the partitions and what not. but i personally will never go back. my first distro i ever installed was mandrake 8 i believe. and i really didnt like it that much but i would love to try out mandrake 10 just to see how far they have come since 8

granted it is still a 'newbie' distro if i were to classify it (lots of gui) but of the 3, i find it to be the fastest, I also like mandrake, as i like urpmi to the mandrake cooker, and utilize allot of teh experimental versions. mandrake was also the first major distro to include the 2.6 kernel by default.
