    TODAY'S DISTROWATCH :

    "Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distribution"

    - MY EMPHASIS....

    MINT 13 is not Debian based; only older LMDE is. Debian-based does not have a recent Linux kernel .... very big difference.

    LMDE has been very minor in the Mint distros. Could you correct your survey?

    IMHO - Xubuntu is much more popular than Lubuntu; it iwhy it is sand s a defacto replacement for Unity-haters. Kubuntu is heavier on resources than Ubuntu. Nearly all the 12.04 'buntus avoid Unity, including the many 'buntu versions of Mint 13.

    Ubuntu 12.04, with Unity is the most hated distro ever IMO. I can't understand why the media so applaud it.

    I'm using Xubuntu. It's simple and - due to XFCE - more customizable than Ubuntu IMHO. Even though my current computer is slow, I prefer a lightweight OS in general.
    I don't need special FX, fancy graphics and stuff... just need something that works! Which doesn't mean that I don't like wallpapers. :P

    Currently, I'm using Mint 13 and have been using Mint since version 11. I originally used Ubuntu, but found that no matter how much I tried to like unity I just didn't like the Launcher and overall desktop. So now I'm a loyal Mint user.

    Arch FTW!
  • Wait, freebsd?
    Well, anyway. I use Pinguy OS 11.04

    FreeBSD is another popular *nix-like operating system, except more traditional and familiar to the older unix systems from the '80s and '90s. Great operating system if you ask me :)

    btw recently using Arch Linux but currently using Pinguy OS 12.04

    Currently using Mint 13 XFCE edition and I bet it will be my primary OS for a while. Mint did a great job recognizing all my hardware and I love the polished look.

    I had been using Ubuntu, however since the switch to Unity I have never successfully got my monitors to work correctly so I was pleasantly surprised Mint worked fine after installing the Nvidia drivers.

    Not at all Quids, Ubuntu is still used by many people around here :) The poll just reflects that at one time, some people went through an 'Arch' phase, some of those have moved to Gentoo, some to other Distros. Will be interesting to see the results again in one years time.

    Well, just a thought but since FreeBSD isn't Linux we might as well add OpenBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X, and even Windows.

    I have a collection of machines, as follows;

    Laptop - Gentoo Linux
    PC1 - Gentoo Linux
    PC2 - Gentoo FreeBSD / Arch Linux
    Firewall - ClearOS
    Dedicated Server - Gentoo Linux
    VPS1 - Arch Linux
    VPS2 - CentOS
    VPS3 - Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    VPS4 - Ubuntu 12.O4

    I then also have a collection of virtual machines on which I run a collection of distributions;

    Arch Linux - Testing
    Ubuntu 12.04
    Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 2
    FreeBSD
    OpenBSD
    Calculate Linux
    Metasploitable
    Windows XP Service Pack 4
    Windows Vista
    Windows 7
    Windows 8
    Windows Server Edition 2003
    Windows Server Edition 2008

    Basically I run a sh*t tonne of distributions! Mainly for testing and development work. I run Windows only for the purpose of 'hacking' and other related goodness.
  • ValtamValtam Registered
    Nice collection there, and I assume you mean penetration testing to in your final comment.

    I did. That's why I felt it was best to quote the term.

    Of course I could debate the fact that the term 'hacking' has been used in the incomplete context here as the term 'hacking' is defined as the act of 'tinkering'; well at least its original meaning as which was defined by the creators of the word at MIT. These days of course the term has been twisted by western media. In my opinion the correct term to which we should use in reference to "wanna' be social revolutionaries, script kiddies, n00bs, 13 year olds, criminals" is 'crakers'.

    I see hacking as a good thing and not a criminal act. It's a common lack of social education that leads people to think differently. Just my opinion.

    I'm a software developer by nature and to a degree, as I tinker with other peoples work I could be referred to as a hacker and in fact I sometimes am.

    Anyway; in this case I was of yes of course talking about penetration testing.
