    Laptop is still on a VERY broken OpenSUSE 11.1 since 2009, although i intend to remove it some time this year and replace it with a more stable, not-so-borked-but-non-bleeding-edge distro like OpenSUSE 11.2, Mandriva 2010.0 or Fedora 10.

    My DIY desktop PC runs a triple boot with Mandriva 2010.0 as the main OS, and Fedora 10 + Windows Vista serving as stable backup operating systems.

    Backup desktop PC (also self-built and assembled) is powered by Fedora 10.

    Yep, all RPM based. I refuse to touch the likes of crap-Buntu and its derivatives like Linux Mint with a 10 kilometer pole.

    Debian is fine and stable, but the packages in the repos are just too old for my personal use. When I had Lenny installed some time back, I could not even build and compile aMSN because the official repos did not stock up on Tck 8.5 and Tk 8.5.

    I've switched to Slackware-current, with IceWM.
    And I'm rather enjoying it.

    Been running Debian for the last three - four years, mostly unstable with Xfce. Just switched to Slackware 13.37 with KDE and very impressed so far.

    I have two clones that I am swapping back and forth between: Debian 6.0 and Kubuntu 11.04. Since Debian is forcing me to learn more about Linux, I am thinking of dual-booting it.
    Linux user since: June 2007
    Current distro: kubuntu-14.04
    Specs: AMD Atholon 64 X2 3.2 Ghz, 4GB RAM, GeForce GTS 250 1GB VRAM
    High five if you saw the linux computers 24 used on their CTU sets.
