Linux Like many OSNews readers, I use Ubuntu. I also use several less popular distros. What is it like to use these lesser-known distros compared to the dominant systems? How does running, say, VectorLinux or Puppy or PC-BSD, differ from using Ubuntu or Fedora? This article offers a few ideas. Obviously, it broadly generalizes about distros for the purpose of discussion.

I had the same experience with PC-BSD. When I had an installation issue due to having two kinds of disk controllers on my machine, Kris Moore himself stepped in to help out. You just don't get that kind of personal attention with the big distros.
