Here is a refresh of the poll from last year:

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=152954

What distro do you use? (and, yes, we know that BSD is not Linux, but it is popular enough to add to the poll, making this more of an Open Source OS poll)

What distro do you recommend as a "first distro" for someone new to Linux?

If you are new to Linux, and have a question on which Linux distro to try, this thread is the place to pose your question. All general questions regarding "which Linux distro" for typical desktop use will be moved here for the community to answer. Technical quesions or problems are considered "off-topic" for this thread, and should be made into their own topic.

Ubuntu Rules!

I agree... except for the fact that I can't get it to work. Well it works, but I mean, for some reason the LILO or GRUB won't detect that I have a Windows installation. :/

SUSE rules. I used it for awhile as my main OS until my parents tried using it :D. Only problem I had was an issue with Radeon drivers... damn you ATI!

I've used Mandrake for long periods of time before, too. It's also a very nice system.

I've used fedora, ubuntu, slackware, gentoo, mandrake and yoper. As nice as they all are I just keep drifting back to fedora :)

Fedora, totally. I've tried other distros, but Fedora is just the easiest and best in my eyes. Load it up with Apt and Synaptic PM and you're set. :D

Lately, I have been messing around with SUSE 9.2 Pro, and am impressed with it. So far, no serious issues...

Debian would come in a close second..
