    I voted deb based but...

    My main box ubuntu and main laptop #!
    My second laptop is Slackware
    My virtual server is Debian
    Servers at work are RHEL

    I think this would have been better as multiple choice

    Arch Linux on all my machines, of course.

    Why is Slackware listed under source-based distros?

    Started with Ubuntu, but had some dual display issues, so i'm now at Fedora.

    Also tried others, like slackware, LFS, debian, RHEL.

    Ubuntu & Mandriva here. Voted for RPM-based since Mandriva is the one I mainly use.

    I use Arch.. Its a biniary distro. But I use a lot of svns to compile the software I run. Thus I picked sourcebased.

    Because you compile most of the software you install

    I'm a PC and Gentoo was my idea!
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
