    yeah

    Slakware ... just for the fact that it seems very stable ... uses memory very intellingently ... and is a command-line os ... i hate the time it takes to load up the gui for widoze ... also it readds and writes from disk much quicker ... love it ... my second fav is devided between windoze 98 se ... and windows xp ... i would say dos ... but it's just a watered down version of unix...

    Most of my experience is in windows and Win98SE isnt bad...

    i like Win2K, its pretty good compared to previous windows.

    Linux Mandrake is good, its user friendly and a good way to learn linux.

    Red Hat isnt bad at all, my friend ran a very stable server from it.

    Ive heard good stuff about BSD

    hmm me says for X86 I am a
    Linux Debian person myself usually run Gnome if I wan't graphics

    As a 2nd choise being a gaming person I like win XP (so far)
    but I am sure as with all windows versions there is something hiding in it that will kick me when I least expect it

    3rd... Are we only talking x86??

    I definitely prefer Linux. I've run several versions of RedHat, some Caldera, and currently have SuSE 7.2

    Through it all, I have to maintain Win 98SE on the wifey's computer, and have an ME box for games that has caused me no problems at all.

    I'm also stuck with Windows for work, and prefer Win2k over NT4, as long as I've enough memory on the machine.

    I've also successfuly run apache webserver on a 98 box, with no problems or breakins.
