    there have been many threads covering this subject already.
    it's a matter of choice/personal preference/etc.
    what will you be using linux for?

    I tried Mandrake only once, and it annoyed the heck out of me, largely because it's KDE based. I used to use Fedora Core, but recently I switched to Gentoo, and I have to say, it's easily the best distro out there (unless you do a stage 3 install, in which case it's average).

    Linux is for those who want to know why their computer works.

    I'm locking this thread as it has been covered extensively on these forums. This question is a question of preference and cannot be answered for you. Do research. Read reviews and opinions. And *gasp* try other distros. You can always go back to the one you like the most after you've tried two dozen of them and made your own assessments.
