I can't seem to find this topic anywhere, so here goes - every forum *has* to have one of these! :cheers:

So, if you have any kind of Linux experience, or if you've tried various distros before, do let us know.

Desktops wise, I'm a big Ubuntu fan - the app repositories (Aptitude) are usually up to date, and it's feature packed. I'm yet to find a major thing to complain about with regards to this OS.

On servers, it simply has to be CentOS - RHEL based, reliable, secure. Only complaint is that the repos are often out of date - but I usually get round this by installing EPEL and sometimes installing the REMI repository.

Your turn! :cheers:

Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat rocks

Quote

The biggest new features in Maverick Meerkat are centered on the cloud, and the way the OS interacts with it by way of its Ubuntu One cloud storage system. All users of Ubuntu get 2GB of free storage in Ubuntu One, and you can easily add more by logging into your account on the one.ubunutu.com Web site.

Adding to the cool factor here is that Canonical is working on a Windows-based client, so you'll even be able to synchronize your files and music (including that purchased from the Ubuntu One Music Store via the included Rhythmbox Music Player) on a Microsoft-based PC. That's a major step for Ubuntu, and probably one that will help encourage adoption—at least among second and third PCs
.

That Windows-based client sounds good !

...and for the first time I'm playing games on Linux really smoothly. Alien-Arena is quite nice and very similar to Quake III and DooM 4.
