Haha, i agree with nar singh
I used Red Hat as my first linux ( Now using Fedora)
Well, it pampers me a lot especially in console mode. Suitable for setting up servers.
Slackware is my new flavour . Well, it's very fast i can say. Few services and fast boot up time.
Not very suitable for beginners. I like its idea of installing package without dependencies. (*.tgz packages)
Mandrake, errr, guess i use it only for multimedia stuffs. Nothing much actually. Very suitable for those u likes to use GUIs (good for beginners)
Cant i vote more than one distros?
I like slackware too.
