Linux Mind your manners, now. We're not saying that they do in general. There's just a good chap who has come up with a list in two parts of varied Linux distributions that he deems use-worthy. He also gives a short description about them and a link to their project websites. Some are the obvious Ubuntu, Gentoo, and other major players, but others you may or may not have heard of and may find useful. Enjoy reading part one from May of this year and part two that was published just recently in October. What are some of the perhaps more obscure Linux distributions that you've found useful and noteworthy?

They forgot GoboLinux!

GoboLinux is the only distro with a sane file system layout and sane package manager. Unfortunately, it isn't updated that often and doesn't have many packages (although it's better off than most obscure distos, and its pretty easy to package things yourself).

I would really love to see a distro like Ubuntu adopt GoboLinux's ideas. That way we could have a sane and easy to use system.
