Linux.

Mac is better than Windows, but Linux rules them all (and a lot of distros are free- in more than one sense!).

I'm pleasantly surprised. There are a lot more linux people here than I expected.

Post your favourite distro!

Mine: Debian or anything Debian-derived (I love apt-get)

How many distros (versions) have you tried of Linux? I didn't like the first couple I tried (Red Hat and SUSE) but was happy with Ubuntu (and even happier with Kubuntu- which basically just looks different).

Also, when did you try it? They've come on a long way, and there are huge improvements being made all the time :)

Red hat makes a decent enough server, but if oyu wish to preserve your sanity then don't use it as a desktop.

I like ubuntu (I haven't tried kubuntu, but like you said, it's just ubuntu with KDE), although debian is what i keep coming back to. I also use knoppix cds on occasion.

Might be time to try another... some even work on Macs :)

I recommend Debian, the Ubuntu lot (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Xubuntu), and Mepis. Mepis is the easiest for beginners, I feel.

Sorry about the thread necromancy, but it's probably better than startign a new one.

I've started using Kubuntu in the past few months, and I really like it so far. It took all the minor annoyances that I had with Debian and fixed them. All of my computers are now dual-boot kubuntu/winxp boxes.

i still can't get my wifi working on my laptop in kubuntu, though. Then again, linux wifi is always notoriously difficult.
