    This should probably be locked.

    One of these threads should be locked. This one has a better poll though.

    I voted more than 20.
    I can't even remember all of the distros that I have tried.
    I currently use all of the distros in my sig and I check Distrowatch daily for more interesting distros to come out.

    Yeah, I agree. I guess I'll go ahead and lock the other.

    The total of different distros is 14.
    If you add different versions, the total goes to 24.
    If you add different *nix, the total goes to 27.

    I think this makes me a distro junkie.

    That depends what you consider a distro, but I voted 10-20. I've had everything from floppy distros to full on distros installed in different machines. I've probably tried over 10 floppy distros, I those mainly to get REALLY ancient computers going with something useful. My favorite floppy distro is Blueflops, only need 8MB of RAM and has a graphical Links browse. As for regular distros, close to 10 as well, but not quite there. Most of them were Debian based, so I'm if that counts as one or not.

    Currently, I have Debian and Slack on test computer, and Ubuntu on the house's computer (the one everyone uses).
