Linux Here's a topic guaranteed to start controversy. Which Linux distribution is best? It all depends on your criteria for judging. Even then the topic is highly subjective. Here are a few nominees for "best distro" in specific categories.

Has anyone changed distros to something that wasn't a parent/derivative of your old distro and stuck with it?

Since you asked, I would love to tell you about my Linux history! (doesn't every Linux nerd?) ;)

I was introduced to Linux using Mandrake.

I learned Linux using Slackware.

I discovered package management using Debian.

I took a break and used the user friendly Ubuntu.

I became passionate about software freedom using gNewSense.

I keep current and in control using Arch Linux.

I used each of those distributions for at least about a year. I've been using the same installation of Arch Linux for three years now.
