Linux users? Are there any here?

Linux users? Are there any here?
If so, what do you like about linux? Whats your favorite flavor? how do you find it compares to windows.
I like linux mint myself. I find it is basically a more stable and more polished ubuntu. I love linux because of package manager technology and the sheer configurability. Also what desktop you guys like? Im using maye right now, but about to try kde after a few years.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

You mean android for desktops! Hehe.
installed plenty of virtual fc6 as squid caches back in the day. Since I'm on msdn, I'm a long suffering windoze user.

I tried that crap called Linux once and 4 hours later it was a huge pleasure to get rid of it. Free isn't always the best, as Torvalds' disciples keep proving nowadays.

Better then windows my friend. It's just a bitch to set up properly. Try Linux mint. Should work on most hardware without much issue.

Oh, I did. Mint is the worst of all other distributions. That crap can't run properly on a quad-core with 8GB RAM and a 128-bit video card. Keeps freezing for no reason, the system takes about 10 minutes to start on a freshly new formatted hard drive, video card drivers stay in the system just until the next reboot and if you don't install the damn driver you can't have a 16:9 resolution. Not to mention the not working updates. Last time I tried Mint (17 KDE), it couldn't update because the program responsible for updates was glitchy and the OS couldn't update the updater! (faceplanet) Which only lead me to two choices - either get rid of that misconception or find another distribution. I prefered the first.

Ah I see. Its unfortunate that you have such an experience. If your interested in coding though I say try your luck woth fedora. The open-source community is a very rich environemnt for someone looking to learn.

The only Fedora I've ever liked was Fedora 16 but it's not supported anymore. Fedora 16 was the only version of a distro that accepted the video driver and kept it even after the reboot.
