Hello LXF Team!

Thanks a lot for your great magazine. I really love it and it helped me already many times in solving problems with my linux system.

I am just wondering what Linux Distribution you are using. Sometimes I see screenshots in the magazine from SUSE or Fedora, but what you are using for your daily work?

Thanks,
Marco

Lo Marco,

Glad you like the mag. As for distros: there are quite a few being used amongst LXF staff and freelancers. I've been running Slackware for a few years, now Ubuntu.

I have SUSE 9.3 Pro on my x86 desktop, Kubuntu on my PPC desktop and Xandros 3.0 Business Edition on my laptop. My screenshots are usually taken in SUSE with loads of extra eye candy added because I'm superficial...

I use Gentoo on my Athlon64 desktop, my PPC laptop and my x86 server, but I also have at least half a dozen other distros installed in VMWare at any one time. Currently, my VMware directory contains:

Arch Linux
Ark Linux
Debian
FedoraCore 3 and 4
Gentoo
Mandriva X 2
MEPIS
Slackware
Ubuntu

Although I don't use them all at once Smile

And what about forum members? I tri-boot SuSe 9.3, Ubuntu hoary and Win XP on the desktop. Ubuntu hoary on the laptop. Ubuntu is my fav distro.

SuSE.
8.2 on both server and workstation at work, 9.2 on both server and laptop at home.

Embeddix on my Sharp Zaurus

Knoppix when I need to rescue a dead Windows system.

Also Fedora Core 2 on the machine I'm using to teach my daughter Linux (using Maddog's excellent Dummies book) and a broken Fedora Core 3 system on a spare partition of a Win2k machine at work (might replace with Debian when I get a bit of time).

Well, SuSE9.3 Pro on my 64-bit box, my oldish laptop and on my second computer; Mandriva2005 LE on my box of death; Puppy 1.0.4 on a box I threw together out of spare parts and Smoothwall on my firewall box.
I also have Xandros under qemu (a virtual box), but hardly get round to looking at it.

Debian testing on main box, in theory it triple boots with Win98SE and MadrivaLE, both seldom used.
Mepis upgraded to debian testing on Dell latitude CPx dual with Microparp Wink
My test machine currently has FedoraCore 4 but there are also PCLinux, Ubuntu on other hdds and there are a couple of other beta distros that I haven't managed to figure out yet.
oh and a Zaurus with Embedix

Dick
ps soon getting old iMac to play with too, there is also a 286 that works which I will put minix on sometime soon Wink

I am using Ubuntu Hoary. It is very stable and I love Synaptic, because it is very easy to keep the system up to date with this great tool.

I also tried several other distros like Gentoo, SuSE and Slackware, but I always went back to Debian/Ubuntu.
