    How many distro's have you tried?

    Just wondering how many distros people have tried. As well as the poll please list your distros in the format

    distro liked/disliked

    and how long you have been using linux.

    I will start:


    Fedora liked
    ubuntu liked
    debian liked
    Opensuse disliked
    PCBSD disliked
    FreeNAS liked ( a lot)
    Arch liked
    Mandriva disliked
    CentOS liked
    Slackware liked
    Opensolaris hated with a vengence

    probably have tried others but can't really remember.

    Have been using linux for about 7 years now.

    EDIT: By tried I mean installed and fiddled with even if it was installed for under an hour. Live CD doesn't really count.

    i have only used ubuntu and linux mint.
    ubuntu- rocks
    mint- eats my ram (only 256mb) disliked

    have been using ubuntu for about a year, and am loving it.
    always learning more every day.
    this is the best tech community i have ever known.

    If "tried" includes simply running a live cd (instead of installing the distro or virtualization), then 10+. I don't know for sure how many.

    Re: How many distro's have you tried?

    I've only tried 3. If, however, kubuntu counts as a seperate distro to ubuntu, then it's 4. I just placed 3-4 =)

    Ubuntu: liked (a lot)
    Linux Mint: liked (lots of practical pre-installed repositories)
    OpenSuse: disliked
    Kubuntu: disliked

    Re: How many distro's have you tried?

    I've lost count of the amount I've tried over the last 5 years now. And to be quite honest I've actually got sick of "distro hopping" now at this stage.

    Re: How many distro's have you tried?

    i thought that tried meant the "use for some time" kind of "try" , so i voted for 5-6
    (5 to be exact
    ubuntu - still using it
    open solaris - nothing i wanted there
    pcbsd - PERFECT sound, clearer and louder than any other, yet needs too much attention in order to have it the way you want
    linux mint - disliked
    fedora - disliked

    as for the "insert a live cd" kind of "try" eh... i have tried almost everything worth trying. but i can't say that that kind of trying gives any experience, it just satisfies the curiosity

    Over the years, about 80 distros and I'm not joking. I always reinstall Slackware though.

    and what do you mean by tried though? install it for one or two months or use it for a day?
