    RedHat - SuSE - Knoppix


    I used Red Hat for a few years (1998 to 2001). I then switched to SuSE and I have been using it ever since.

    On occasion I will use the Knoppix Live CD (and now live DVD).

    I've played around with the Live CD's for most distributions, but I don't consider that playing around (for a few hours) meets the criteria for acatually trying a distribution. I think one has to use a distribution for at least a couple of months, before it meets the criteria.

    Hence I filled in only "3" on the poll.

    I've used three as my main distro.

    First tried Mandrake 9.1 for almost a year. Currently I use both Debian for three years and Gentoo for eight to nine months.

    The two other distros I barely used.

    I played with Knoppix for less than a week after Mandrake. And played with Ubuntu when it first came out, also less than a week. Although I always have a copy of both of them on CD.
