    Just to be a bit picky, several of the "distros" that Ozar mentioned are BSD variants, which are not technically "distros" and definitely not Linux. If those are fair game I could add 4 or so more to my list.

    I've tried these distro's

    Slackware (still my favorite)
    Gentoo (a close second)
    RedHat 5.X - 9.0 (first distro was RedHat 5.X)
    Fedora Core
    Mandrake/Mandriva
    Suse
    College
    Debian
    Ubuntu
    Kunbuntu
    Slax (live CD)
    Knoppix (live CD)
    Peanut
    elx
    Vector
    Xandros
    PHLAK
    Damn Small
    Puppy
    Linspire
    Arch
    Novell (Novell Linux Desktop and Open Enterprise Server)

    I think that is all. I guess that would fall into the more than 20 category.
