    Perfect match (100%) with Ubuntu and derivatives (Linux Mint and Kubuntu), OpenSuSE and Mandriva - the distributions for noobs :D and 90% match with Fedora. Still, a long compatibility list. ;)

    Same as IvanV - this seems to be the set you get if you are reasonable on the tech side but say no Linux experience.

    I got mandriva, then ubuntu, then kubuntu, then mint, then OpenSuSE. Mint is new to me. Currently use kubuntu when I'm not in windows.

    Kind of off topic, but I've just installed Fedora 11 x64 from a live CD and it was such a breeze! Apart from being simple (and a basic setup had been simple for awhile on any distribution I'd come across), the installation ran from within the booted OS, so I'd have been able to use Firefox to look for help had I needed it. Nice! :)

    Well, as much as a newbie can say, it's fine. The system seems snappy and it displayed no "unusual" behaviour (no ext4 induced data loss yet :D).

    The only thing I could complain abut is that the versions of Java and/or Netbeans that I was served through Package Kit performed awfully (it was so slow that even navigating menus was difficult and updating the system and the application was of no help). The CPU wasn't anywhere near 100% and swap file was almost not used at all, so I've got no idea what the issue was, but downloading Netbeans and Java JDK directly from Sun gave me much better performance (though the IDE is still a bit laggy compared to how it behaves on Windows on this same machine, I've got no idea if it's normal?!).

    I got several with 100%
    Kubundu
    ubundu
    mandriva
    opensussee (or something)
    one more than I don't remember
    and 90% a mint flavour.

    If it wasn't for the games, I would install one, but as it is now, no reason to.

    Always a good reason - unleash the inner geek man ! always good to actually experiment and learn new operating systems, right? I think many windows users are just far too lazy tbh. baffles me.

    Always fun to experiment and still wanting to try OSX out here myself. Still shopping for a laptop the Macbook is looking like a possibility if I can afford it.

    On Fedora 11 I might just install it this weekend on my AMD system to play with it ;)
