Re: What distro are you trying right now?

Knoppix 7.0.2 Live DVD recently released by Klaus Knopper. Have always been a fan of Knoppix as it was the first Live distro tried here around 2005 and ver. 3.7. This latest release is large and nearly fills a dvd. I believe that Knoppix has helped make the Linux community what it is today by its portability and its ability to rescue Windows systems during its beginnings as a LiveCD.

Never tried Knoppix, but I agree that the ability to "rescue" Windows would be a big plus in it's early days.

Re: What distro are you trying right now?

Knoppix was one of the first of the Just Works distros, and as a CD, it was great--you could show your friends, without putting anything on their hard drive, how well Linux could run. It was one of the first with really excellent, albeit not perfect, hardware detection.

Since there's neither a hotdog on plymouth, nor with the default wallpapers, currently playing around with F17.

Re: What distro are you trying right now?

Add me to the list of Arch linux triers! The motivation was as an easy way to get a working clang 3.1 to explore new C++11 code, but I also wanted to see what the love was about. I only made a basic text only install, but an very impressed.

Re: What distro are you trying right now?

There is a text install for fedora too. Building fedora from it is also interesting!

Re: What distro are you trying right now?

I'm trying out Fedora 17.

It's my 4th Linux so far, and I think I'm sticking with this one for a bit longer than the rest. In the past I've tried Peppermint OS One which I liked for it's speed although the community wasn't as big. Then I tried Ubuntu which felt a lot like I was spoon-fed everything to know about being on Linux. Then I tried ArchLinux, in which I had no idea how to install from scratch.

So far, Fedora seems right in between being user friendly but also being a challenge (as a learning experience).

That's where the Arch linux wiki comes in.

Re: What distro are you trying right now?

Hanging with Clem and Linux Mint 13 MATE. I am enjoying Mint MATE, but wonder if it is sustainable

Re: What distro are you trying right now?

I'm triple-booting my old (AOD250) netbook with (the original) Windows 7 [Starter], Linux Mint 13 [Cinnamon] and Fedora 17 [Gnome 3].
