    Been running Arch now for a year and don't see myself switching anytime soon (used Ubuntu for a year before that). Do have windows 7 on the box for my wife and use XP at work, but after being an Arch guy, I can't hardly work on the windows stuff anymore!

    Using Ubuntu on two machines, Mint on three, CRUX on two and Slackware on one. This Slackware box is a headless Shoutcast encoder using SW 10.1 with 2.4 kernel! I know it's old but it still works flawlessly and I'm from the "if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it" school of thought.

    At work I'm the sysadmin for a farm of Centos web servers, mainly v5.9, upgrading them one by one to Centos 6.3.

    At home I've used Ubuntu for about 5 years but moved to Mint 11 a while ago when I got fed up trying to fight against the Unity interface (which had some exciting behaviours on my old dell laptop)

    Also far too many years under my belt working with various incarnations of windows

    After my hard drive was replaced the ad in Distrowatch about Antix12 got me to buy a disk. I could not install Mint, Ubuntu has turned ghastly, and Suse is not what it used to be.
    I looked at Knobbix, Puppy, and even AV Linux. I now have AntiX12 and PCLinuxOS 2010.12 gnome on my computer and I hope they serve me well!

    lol... I looked at that several times really late last night but was too tired to figure it out, so I'm glad you cleared that up by correcting that spelling error!

    What do you currently use as your default Linux distribution?

    I'm running CRUX 2.8 at the moment and have been ever since its release a week or two back.

    I first used CRUX about 8 yeas ago, and still like it because the installation and configuration seem easy and natural to me, but I also continue to find that the long compile times for some ports (packages) become monotonous after a while. The current selection of 64-bit ports is not all that great, either. While I could create them myself, that takes even more time. This installation has gone onto a separate hard disk so that I can play around with it as time permits, and I might gradually migrate to CRUX as my default distro, but that remains to be seen.

    In the interim, Arch has been my default distro for the last 9 years, so it's pretty hard to walk away from that.

    We'll see how it all goes!
