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?

...are sheer frustration if you are playing Oracle RAC then I have to say from a server guys view, udev on Linux to make /dev/stuff stay in the same place twice is the most painful experience I've ever had in my life...

udev seems like a fantastic amount of tweakability, but the whole dev thing should just work properly by default.

Don't worry. udev is in the process of getting thrown out in favor of the new DevFS. It's supposed to shave a couple of seconds off boot time.
