    You favorite Linux distro, and recommendations?


    I can't seem to stick with one, so I'm hoping you guys can recommend one that turns on really fast, and is lightweight. I seem to use only Google Chrome, maybe play some Linux games. I don't like Lubuntu so no.

    Have you looked at Slackware, Debian, CrunchBang or antiX?
    For more hands-on fun: Arch, CRUX or Gentoo.

    Currently on Mageia with an XFCE desktop. Given that I chose Mageia by rolling dice, I really lucked out. Very impressed with it so far. I originally installed it with LXDE which is even lighter but I didn't get on with the environment as well,

    We like what we know. Try Vector Linux Standard edition Gold.

    For newbies I would suggest Mint 13 as it has a 5 year support and it updates continuously. Others who would like to be more active in computing, Linux Debian Mint Edition (LDME)

    I do like Mint, but the OP already rejected Lubuntu. So I'm thinking that Mint might be out of consideration.

    Sorry for the silly question: what's OP?
    Mint is the most popular distro according to distrowatch.

    Yes, Mint is on top of the DistroWatch list.
    But that might not be the best for everyone.... Including me or our OP.
