So, what is your favorite distribution of linux, and why?
Mine, is Fedora; currently running 28 with Cinnamon on this i7. Haven't tried 29 just yet; have the iso's just haven't booted. I think my all time favorite version would probably be either Fedora 8, or 17. Though I have been considering trying out Slackware once again. Beyond that, custom is always nice; just tedious.
Personally, I like Red Hat back in the 90's; when I was first learning about computers as a kid. As time has progressed, the Red Hat Trilogy, has maintained the widest support for hardware, always been innovative, and a wide range of support for rpms.
