What linux distribution do you use?
This is something that i've asked myself for some time. What linux distribution should i use? I've used until now redhat 6.1 and slacware 9.0

Red hat 8.0 is good for server sort of things, if u are beginner or intermediate user go for Mandrake or susi.lastly its ones own like or dislike for things that come into front basicakally all have same kernel

I have been using RedHat9.0.
But since you have already used slackware and RH I suggest go to a *BSD such as OpenBSD, NetBSD, or FreeBSD.

No offense intended, but why not search the forums? This has been covered more times than I can count (hell, there's even a link to one in the similar threads at the bottom of this thread). I think, if you search the forums, you'll find a number of excellent responses to which distributions individuals use and why they use them.

I've used Red Hat 8.0 for quite a long time, it's great, you can secure it quite well. But you could have a look to Knoppix 3.2 as well (www.knopper.net), a Debian(unstable)-based linux distribution. It's quite complete.

currently RH 7 - games server
have only played with RH6-7, Mandrake 9 (looked good for a windows guy), Lycorsis (give me windows)
And this is from a person who is not really into linux.. I am checking things out.. suppose working on a SCO- Unix server don't count huh (ok i replace a bloody cooling fan in the sys-and it was when i had less grey hair)
