Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

Use WinXP/OSX for desktop and Free/Open/NetBSD for servers. Currently thats what each works best at. In the future if they become better at other/different roles I will use them according to their strengths. I've shuffled linunx distros countless times and realize that they just aren't up to par if you actually want to get stuff done productively. If linux doesn't get organized soon it will become just another toy o/s that people with too much time on their hands hack around in!

Sure. Tell that to IBM, SGI, Oracle, and others. Maybe some of those companies might actually use FreeBSD on their servers if it could scale at all.
