Our survey results will see some additional tabulations before we release them. Even so, we received many outstanding posts. So, today, we'll allow you to have a look at what many of those surveyed wrote.

SUSE for me! However, I do tend to go back and forth between SUSE and Fedora. Back in 97 when I was first introduced to Linux, I was loyal to Redhat. As years passed, I tried many different distros but kept going back to Redhat and later, Fedora. With that said, believe it or not, the SUSE box at our local Borders eventually caught my eye. That was a few years ago and I still prefer SUSE to this day. I use SUSE for one simple reason, It just works! :) Although I enjoy OS 'tinkering', and getting my hardware to work with the different distros, if I am in the mood for an 'out of the box' experience I turn to SUSE.

The distro of choice discussion makes me wonder though, do people settle on a distro based on the deskop suite/environment such as KDE/Gnome? I question this because I have also enjoyed Ubuntu and it also 'just works'.... but I ended up back in the SUSE camp because of KDE (Kubuntu came along after I experimented with Ubuntu and went back to SUSE).
