      Any Linux users here? Usually what I use Linux for is low powered PC's, old computers (7+ years old with low-end specs) and netbooks. Linux is a free open source OS and because of that, there are dozens of different flavors & distrobutions such as Debian, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Fedora, ArchLinux, Mint, etc.


      Which ones have you used and which is your favorite?

      I like Xubuntu and Mint. Although I found Mint to run best on most netbooks i've tested it on so that's probably my favorite distro. :)


      Edit: This was my 666th post! :O

      I tried Ubuntu quite a while back but just couldn't get into it.

      I haven't had time to sample all the linux flavors (heh), but I enjoy Ubuntu the most and mint is alright.

      I've run Ubunto, Xubunto, and Mint. I liked Mint, and would have kept running it if my games would work. Also, I couldn't speed up my CPU fan speed despite my sincerest of efforts. :(
