@GNUguy -- I also got caught up in the sidux/aptosid political BS -- this is why I was so glad to discover siduction.
BTW, a new Dev Release has come out, according to distrowatch -- "Riders on the Storm," it's called.
Secondarily, IMHO, is the 'buntu:Mint 'hybrid' called Peppermint-3-20121105 in both i386 and amd64 architectures.
For those adventurous enough, Salix OS, in either arch and Fluxbox, KDE, LXDE, MATE or Xfce
Best wishes, all!
I like ubuntu as it is very good in its stability
Mint for me. Everything just works!
i have Ubuntu now, works great. but i am going to try Fedora.
I jump mostly from Ubuntu to Arch, but Arch is more suited for my needs.
I'm a scarycat, lol. I need stability first, simplicity second, speed third, and beauty fourth. Those are my priorities. Xubuntu LTS met that criteria very nicely, until big major updates came rapidly and furiously and scared the heck out of me. Two kernel updates in the same week for goodnessakes! No no no no noooo, stability is Priority #1! Out of fear of the next update totally breaking the system, I searched the 'net for an alternative and ended up with the awesomest, most delightful Xfce distro! It's Slackware-based, so it's as stable as Old Debian but with fully up-to-date software. It's Xfce so it's simple and pretty, and oh my gosh, it's so F A S T ! Zoom, zoom!
And it's simple enough for a farm girl, so it gets big plus there too. It's called SalixOS (I can't post links yet, this is only my second post - just google it). I never thought I'd leave Xubuntu, but I have a theory that although Xubuntu was once-upon-a-time intended for modest hardware, now it's just an alternate desktop for Ubuntu users who don't like Unity. 12.10 is the last Xubuntu release that will still fit on a CD. It's getting bigger and richer and I wish it well, but I've found my new favorite, my new "default distro," and I'm it's newest rabid fangirl.
A Happy Girl,
Who knew Linux would be fun!?
i use linux mint,
i feel good with mint,
My parents love Xubuntu! All those updates that scared me away, they continue to get. And so far, nothing broke except the old version of Flash didn't work - fixed with a new one. As much as I enjoy the stability I have with SalixOS, I miss those wonderful Ubuntu repositories and the trouble-free, dependency-handling of APT. So I'd have to split my vote between SalixOS and good ol' Xubuntu.
