PCLinuxOS ~ It gets the newbies started without to much of a learning curve, has great hardware detection capabilities and can still start off with only one cd. What is downloaded is used as a live cd first to ensure compatibility with your system before you even need to commit to linux.

I think that my favorite Linux distro is Ubuntu. This is just because it is what I was first introduced to and any problems I had were solved by the Ubuntu Community and Forums. I experimented with others but I always seem to come back to Ubuntu for some reason or another. I do want to get experience with Gentoo though and get it working well. Might try to get a machine to run that soon....

One of strong part of Ubuntu is the support of very strong community!
I love how swift my problem can be solved. By the way I use Ubuntu too. Of course multiboot with Vista!

What's your favorite linux distro? tell us why.

My choice is Ubuntu simply because I prefer a Debian based system and the package support for Ubuntu is amazing. Before swapping over last year I have been running a mixture of Slackware, Redhat, and CentOS for the past 10 years or so. Making the move to Ubuntu was easy and actually very painless, with the exception of a few critical Redhat based servers I am still working on the migration for.

My experience is with server platforms only. I use an Ubuntu Jaunty desktop very seldom at work.

Definitely Ubuntu, I think Ubuntu is more practical where everything is installed automatically at install. And being based on Debian it has an excellent packaging system and millions of packages available for it.

It is the distro which has made me to use linux for almost 95% of the time. I use windows only for special applications like games, video-chatting.
