    You can dual/triple/quadruple/you get the idea boot with as many distros as you can put into your computer.
    Someday when I have money, and I can buy more hard drives I will have a lot of distros.

    Just because I can.

    I really don't like dual booting, because of hard drive space...

    gentoo

    alternate: has been slackware, parsix, freebsd, dragonfly bsd...none of which turned out to be sexy or seductive enough for me...I really want another on my alternate harddrive, but after trying gentoo I cannot think of any that I want to try, I dl isos all the time...

    any recommendations?

    Don't get put off by the so-called newbie distros, I love them. Seriously, there's nothing like having a nice GUI tools and ncurses tools to configure your system with. I run FreeBSD, and I use that to "tweak", or basically mess around. I used to run Gentoo, It was the compiling and the community that made me get rid of it.

    Dual boot Debian sarge and netbsd here, although i kind of neglect netbsd right now . btw genesus is there a way to check for junk on gentoo (for instance obsolete or "orphaned" libraries)? I'v wanted to try it out again.
