    Post Survey on Linux Distributions and Features


    Hi,

    As a year 12 student, I am undertaking a research project on the topic of 'Creating a minimal, yet expandable Linux distribution'.

    For part of my research, I require primary information on how many use their distributions.
    That is why I have created a survey to get an idea of what software people use for their distributions for particular purposes.

    If you are interested in helping fill out the survey, please goto:
    <www dot surveymonkey dot com /s /8DM6H9B>
    (you get the idea )

    Feedback is welcome.

    Thank you in advance,
    aswam.

    I found question 1 quite hard as I use different distros regularly ^_^

    I use Gentoo, and have even built a LiveDVD installer (which hold binary packages), but I would not recommend this as a route for hobbyist or a newer person that is attempting their first (or even second) distribution. Also with Gentoo, you really do need to update your system every 3-6 weeks to not get so far out of date of the portage tree (which can be a hassle when too far out of date) as it is a ever moving window of versions of software. Even saying that, I like it best.
