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.

Best distro for linux connoisseurs wrong

I believe that the bst distro for Linux connoisseurs is wrong. I believe the ACTUAL best distro there is Gentoo. Archlinux has many problems. Stability, blindly following upstream, lack of leadership, removing the KISS aspect of the distro (what the distro was originally about).

Gentoo solves all these problems and gives you an EXTREMELY reliable, fast platform to do whatever you need. There's a reason Gentoo is used by performance freaks *AND* NASDAQ.

Also, Gentoo is actually open. There are no secret sites, there are no secret mailing lists, users are not restricted from posting on the -dev mailing list, we do not ban users on the forums just because they disagree with our direction of the distro. Sadly, Arch has/does all these things.
