Default What flavor are you using?

I am now using Kunbuntu! I love it! It is much easier to use than knoppix!

I will post once I've got it installed on my hd.

Currently giving DSL a whirl. Got tired of Ubuntu glitches.

Debian and actually looking at taking the time to convert the server to either Debian or CentOS from Ubuntu. I'm not to thrilled with Ubuntu except for it's great value as a transitional OS easing migration from Win32 to Linux.

Constant problems with graphical corruption and/or freezes were the worst. There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it, nor was the length of time til it happened always constant. My last install lasted a month or so before I had to go back to no X to repair it.

Sometimes it was when copying large files, other times just opening a browser. Always thought it was just me configuring something wrong til I started searching for better fixes.

I've been using Ubuntu 7.04. KDE is ok, I just get sick of everything starting with a K lol. Plus, KDE is a little more hardware extensive than Gnome. I'm lovin Linux though.

Archlinux ( http://www.archlinux.org )

This sounds very cool, tell me more about it. From what I understand their package management system uses 'pacman', and the packages appear as .tar.gz, is this similar to Gentoo's portage system? Is this a binary distribution or one compiled from source code?
