    Linux advantages and disadvantages

    Hi everyone.
    First, excuse my english. It is not my native language.
    I'm a student and I'm working on a comparision between differents distributions of Linux. I'd like to have feelings of users on differents distros.
    It would be very great if you could give me some URLs and personals impressions about your currents distros.
    In advance , thanks

    I use Arch, because it's absolutely minimalistic. I can have a base system installed in about 5 minutes, then I install software as I need it. Most configuration is left to the user, so you'll typically know everything that's happening with your system.

    I use Slackware because it's a very good distro for learning every single detail about Linux. Some users of other distros might say that it is complicated but it is not. You can configure everything manualy if you like. It also runs good on old machines.
