Fedora. It has a good enough level of customisation for me, isn't so easy I get bored, and isn't so difficult I can't do anything!...

    I'm surprised that you haven't figured out some way to hook your machines up to your Motorcycle to get a few more CPU cycles out of them. Some sort of Dell/Harley Davidson Hybrid supercomputer.

    Do your Harley's have computer's like modern cars? If you could do a linux based control program, you could have the best of both worlds.

    I'm taking the Fedora-14-LXDE for a "spin" and I kinda like it. On a P4 3.08GHz machine with 512MB RAM it's doing fine!

    Yeah, Fedora is quite awesome on weak computers.

    Main-PC: 3,4 Quad AMD, 8GB, 1,3TB, GTX260: ArchLinux + GNOME/FVWM

    Second PC: 2,8 Quad AMD, 4GB, 750GB, GTS450: PC-BSD (I think I'll also install Arch ..) and Windows 7.

    Third PC, currently Dead: 3,1 Dual AMD, 3GB, 500GB, GT140: Nothing

    Fourth PC: 3,0 P4, 2GB, 410GB, 6600GT: Also Nothing... but I'm looking for something really lightweight ..

    I use deb based Ubuntu in work. But I used rpm based Fedora at home and rpm based CentOS for my server.

    To TBob and MasonTx. All I gotta say is DRM,DRM,DRM when it comes to hardware and software for Motorcycles (which to me =Harleys)

    That is why I rip out certain electronic ignition modules and fuel injectors on my bikes and run Dana Harmon electronic ignitions which are more mechanical, carry a points conversion kit in toolkit also, and use carburetors which are fixable and mechanically tunable. My scooters run good with this philosophy. Living in the wide open desert spaces leaves one with the Question.

    "Can I fix this in 100F weather on a army blanket on the side of the road and make gaskets with a empty 12 pack beer box ? Damn, the vultures are hovering."

    To mutilate a Kanye West quote. Heat of the moment.

    " Linux don't care about gear heads"

    Not much available that I can use anyhows.

    I'm running a homebrew, thinking about releasing it as a distribution.

    Lilo, busybox, paco, gcc (and libs), x11, kde3 trinity, a few command line applications, and a few scripts to make life easier with paco.
