My Matches:

100% - Gentoo

100% - Arch

100% - Slackware

Which is pretty accurate because I'm an Arch guy myself.

Interesting. It matched me with Debian, Fedora, and Kubuntu. It was probably because of the way I answered the GUI desktop questions. I'm using KDE on Arch currently, and while a may ditch KDE at some point, I think im done switching distros. Arch is where it's at for me.

Fedora, Mandriva, openSuSe.

Fair enough, I use openSuSE as my primary OS anyways, and dabble constantly with the others on one or the other of two smaller partitions. Been using SuSe since 4.2 back in 1996, before that it was a migration from BSD to FreeBSD.

Here's my results:

95% Zenwalk (a distro I've never heard of)

95% Slackware

95% Gentoo

I'm ashamed Gentoo is on my results. I'm more of an OpenSolaris or FreeBSD guy. I run FreeBSD 8-STABLE at work and OpenSolaris and OSX at home. I don't have a single Windows or Linux box on my network, a fact I'm very proud of.

No mention of Arch...which is interesting because I currently use Arch. I switched /away/ from Gentoo after having it eat my lib32 setup. I do like Slackware, tho!

It missed the question - "which package manager do you prefer?"

and suggested my old crap hardware might be too slow for Debian/Ubuntu/etc....

Sorry if I'm a 'Deb' zellot, I got badly burned by 'RPM' a (fair) while ago and am too stubbon to change/give it a second chance.

Munge.

100% opensuse

100% mepis

100% debian

100% kubuntu

100% madriva

100% fedora

Interestingly enough I have used opensuse, kubuntu and mandriva before, enjoyed all of them. Fedora (a long time ago), however, not so much.

100% Ubuntu

100% Debian

100% Mint

Currently I'm using a heavily moded version of Ubuntu. BT4 is also fun.

Back in the day my distros of choice were: Red Hat 9, Debian, Slackware, Knoppix STD, PHLAK and Mandrake. I recommend trying a bunch of differently distros. Most of them have live disk versions available.

100% Debian

100% Ubuntu

100% Mint

I think it was because I hate compiling stuff from source. Probably more of a lack of know how on my part, but apt-get install usually beats dependency hell with nothing but a poorly written README or INSTALL file included with the source code.

I've always been a Debian fanboy anyway.

I live on Fedora most of the time, take care of a number of Ubuntu servers at work and have a few CentOS servers running my Nagios installs. Absolutely love the new Fedora release!

100 debian, suse, mandriva, linux mint, kubuntu, and fedora. thoe i hate ubuntu, and never tried the others, and debian is too old so pretty much aptosid.. just because i have sparc hardware and gentoo doesnt make stable releases for sparc anymore and the unstable ones always fail.. atleast the joke slackware didnt install :P i mean if i wanted to compile everything id use the distro thats made to compile everything.

100% Debian

100% Linux Mint

100% Kubuntu

100% Ubuntu

I'd say it's fairly accurate. I use Linux Mint on my primary machine. It just works, and works well.

100% Slackware

100% Gentoo

I'm not ashamed to have any distro on my network, even microsoft products. After all how can I learn without using them?

Diversity == good. But for my desktop ( a tiny fanless netop pc) I have gentoo. I much prefer it to the xp home it came preinstalled with.

A bit of an older topic, but I'll post anywho...........

My test results were :

100% match

Debian

100% match

Mandriva

100% match

Ubuntu

100% match

Linux Mint

100% match

OpenSuSE

100% match

Fedora

95% match

Kubuntu

Some test...................

jk

It got it pretty accurate. I've tried Debain, OpenSuse, Ubuntu, and Fedora, so it got my taste correct. I haven't tried the others, but since they're listed I'll consider it.

I can see why it's picked the choices it did. I particularly like the Gnome desktop environment.

Good test.

Useful too. Gives me a few others to try... sweet.

Edit : It inserted too many <br></br> somehow by itself. Whatever but it's fixed now. Weird.

Give Linux mint a try. I had it on my netbook for awhile and it runs smooth and has a nice gui. Athough i will be unbuntu for life.

I've tried both and didn't like them. Been using ArchLinux exclusively for many years now and I love it.

For a long time I used FreeBSD and I was sort of anti Linux then Ubuntu came along. I went from regular Ubuntu with Gnome to Xubuntu with XFCE and eventually I replaced XFCE with Fluxbox which I like a lot better.
