    In the past, I've used Fedora and OpenSUSE, but now I stick with Ubuntu. I haven't installed the latest LTS as I have been using the previous one, so I haven't been using Unity.

    Fedora with xfce for my own use (gets rid of the gnome bloat), redhat for work.

    Redhat as the commercial packages I'm using only support it (xilinx )
    though it can be made to run on most distros.

    I find fedora easier for development as it has the more recent packages.

    But have no problems using fedora, redhat/centos, debian or ubuntu or the arm linux versions including openembedded angstrom. Started with slackware 2.

    Regardless of your favourite you should be able to use most distros, it just takes a bit of practise.

    The freebsd ports collection is nice (what the mac ports collections were based off).

    I recently switched from LFS to Gentoo for my primary desktop. And I have to say that it definately adds more productivity but still gives me the fine-grained control that I enjoyed with LFS. Gentoo seems like a nice middle ground so I'm hoping that it works out.

    Despite my RH cert ambitions, I like and use Ubuntu for all my Linux needs. As of late, Solaris as well, although not Linux, just love to play with Zones...

    I'm currently running a VM with a minimal install of Debian Squeeze. Was using Ubuntu before but have decided to try out Debian without GUI so I recover my command line skills. I did some training on RedHat (way back when RedHat 9 was still current) and used CentOS back when it was still relatively new.

    My favorite distro is Mint, but it's too much of a hog to put on anything but fairly recent hardware.

    I've been enamored of late with Bodhi Linux, we'll see how that holds up.

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit with Gnome 2.x interface. Works better than the default Unity desktop and many programs I tried to run wouldn't work at all under Unity.

    @Zoloo- lol- i don't think I have ever heard of any Linux distro described as "cute".

    I personally just gave up on Gentoo and went back to rolling my own and using VMplayer to host other distros so I can use whatever I happen to fancy at the moment.

    At home, I have a CentOS VM I'm using to build an office "workgroup" server from the ground up. This VM is running within VMWare Player 4 under OpenSUSE 11.4 on my aging HP Core 2 Duo laptop.

    I took OpenSUSE on last summer during a rush reinstall to accomodate a replacement SSD in that HP laptop. If it hadn't been for OpenSUSE supporting my wireless card from the get-go, I would have installed something else. All of my other distros would have required various gyrations to get the laptop wireless running again, and I just didn't have time to mess with it.

    And Bodhi. . . it's something I've been messing with in a VM. Seems faster than lubuntu or xubuntu. We'll see.

    Mint.

    That's what I used when I took a Linux class in college. The instructor allowed us to choose from a small list of distros we could use for the class. Mint wasn't on the list but he let me use it anyway. Just one other guy in the class chose it so we were on our own. About mid way through the class, he dropped out so I was the only one in the class using it. Wasn't really a problem for me to figure out, I'm not a linux guy so I think that says something about mint -- easy to use.

    I had problems with kernel panics and the OS running slowly on my older Sony VAIO. I have erased the HD and replaced Fedora 17 with one of my favorite operating systems, Fedora 8.
