    what is everyone's favorite flavor of *nix/linux for an average day of using the box? I like Red Hat...

    I'm a Red Hat person myself, but my not-so-experienced opinion probably doesn't count much, seeing as the only other release I have tried is Mandrake.

    Talking Fav *nix/Linux

    I think any Unix or Linux can be good, even Windows to an extent. You just need to configure it right. I like Mandrake for all the pretty bits and Slackware for serious stuff.

    I'm also a red hat kinda guy, but of course the only other flavor i've checked out is solaris, and that is a shell account, so many probably wouldn't even count that.....

    Nice signature, psi0nic...

    A friend of mine read it and din't find it at all funny... I guess the level of humour on this site needs a certain appreciation of sarcasm, satire, and just general wit!
