sho-dan October 1st, 2005 01:50 PM

i took the test in Norwegian,engrish is all i know;) 1.Gentoo 2.Slackware

HenryVI October 1st, 2005 02:56 PM

I got Fedora as #1 and Mandriva as #2

No surprise to me because I had Fedora first, and answered all the questions with Fedora in mind (graphical installer, Gnome over KDE, rpm based installation etc...) :blush:

uripyores October 1st, 2005 04:44 PM

1.Mandriva.......these mysterious names is what puts a lot of people off trying them I reckon.:dizzy:
I mean, what does ubuntu mean? sounds like some pigmy tribe from the jungle!:D

bAdWaYz October 1st, 2005 06:40 PM

They picked Gentoo and number one for me and Slack as number 2. I do like both of those but can't believe I didn't get BSD as number one. Its either not in their list or I'm not as old school as I thought.

kage October 1st, 2005 08:40 PM

No badwayz, BSD is not on their list. Only linux distros :P

List of distributions
Many have asked us about what distributions are currently included in the test.
The test currently includes these distributions: Fedora Core, Mandriva, SuSE, Debian, MEPIS, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Linspire, Xandros, Desktop/LX, PCLinuxOS, Yellowdog Linux, Gentoo and Slackware.

bAdWaYz October 2nd, 2005 01:15 AM

Ahhhhh well there ya have it. At least Gentoo was picked as number one for me and I can live with that as Gen rocks most hard!

masternige October 18th, 2005 07:12 PM

Iv just taken the test it told me to stick to windows,only kidding. Mandriva as number 1,i used to run redhat but iv just turned to the new debian 3.1,seems quite good.

Accroding to ubuntulinux.org...

"Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". Ubuntu also means "I am what I am because of who we all are".
I like both KDE and gnome, but for this test (since I was on a Linux distro with KDE), I chose KDE, so I got Mandriva as 1, and Kubuntu was on #3.

degsy March 5th, 2006 04:43 PM

The link is in the first post.


It suggested Mandriva for me and the next two were Suse and Ubuntu.

I actually have Suse and Ubuntu installed, albeit as VMWare :)

Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table.

Gentoo
Gentoo Linux is a special flavor of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.

Scary how it *reads* your mind :dizzy:

cajungenes2 April 20th, 2006 04:39 PM

I took the test and it gave me 1. SuSe 10.0 and 2. Mandriva

I have been searching the forum here and reading a lot of posts, but I'm still a little unsure of how to do this.

Should I get a book to read first? Could any of you suggest one?

What I want to do is install Linux on one of my two hard-drives and then try and learn how to use it. But, I'm not even sure how to get it installed without messing everything up again.

I just recently had to reformat both drives and I really don't want to screw everything up again, but if that's the only way I can learn...so be it.

If someone could just add a link to the correct information if it's already been addressed, I would appreciate it.

thanks,

cajungenes

kage April 20th, 2006 07:44 PM

Suse and Mandriva both cost a little bit (still, not much compared to various other operating systems). OpenSuse is essentially the same as Suse, but it is free. I'm providing links below for opensuse, suse, madriva, the linux documentation project, linux questions wiki, and the gentoo wiki.

http://en.opensuse.org/Welcome_to_openSUSE.org
http://www.novell.com/linux/
http://wwwnew.mandriva.com/
http://www.tldp.org/
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Main_Page
http://gentoo-wiki.com/Main_Page


A good way to start learning linux would be read up on how to install it. Once you feel you know enough, go for it. It is kind of like riding a bike, you'll fall a few times when you first start out.

If you have any questions feel free to start a new topic.

dohray April 20th, 2006 07:47 PM

Came up with SuSe and Mandriva for me (using SuSE 10). It's a pretty good guide.

cajungenes2 April 20th, 2006 08:01 PM

Thanks Kage, that gives me plenty to read....and that's what I'm going to do for now, as you suggested.

CG:D

The Dude July 27th, 2006 07:31 AM

Seems like "Mandriva" comes up more than anything (From looking @ all the replies so far)

smurfy July 27th, 2006 11:18 AM

That's because Mandriva's squarely targeted right at the Windows user market so will generally pop up for those wanting Windows-like features in an O/S.

keylay31 August 11th, 2006 08:37 PM

Hi,
I am just looking to try Linux and familiarize myself with it. My top results were Ubuntu, Mandriva, and Kubuntu. Suggestions?

Note: If I could, I'd like to consider RedHat, cuz thats what the Linux Labs at my universtiy have.

Renan September 13th, 2006 01:24 AM

Gives me Debian, MEPIS, Ubuntu and Kubuntu.

Note: If I could, I'd like to consider RedHat, cuz thats what the Linux Labs at my universtiy have.

The "Enterprise" edition of Red Hat is not free, thus you might want CentOS (essentially Red Hat rebuilt from source) or Fedora Core.

The last freely downloadable version of Red Hat is Red Hat 9, from 2003, doesn't have updates anymore, which you most likely don't want.

H34vY4RMs September 24th, 2006 08:57 PM

Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Mandriva

yllek September 27th, 2006 08:34 PM

I'm currently running SuSE 10.0 on this computer, but apparently I'd be more suited with Fedora, lol!

I've always had a like for Fedora's ethics, etc, but I'm not changing any time soon I don't think! It's quite ironic that I've used Fedora 3-4, Red Hat 9, Mandrake 10, SuSE 7-10, Ubuntu, Debian 3.1 and Slackware 10.1, but SuSE has to be the only one I've really gotten along with.

I love it.
Simple, effective and yet still with so much power!

Pliskit November 12th, 2006 08:47 PM

They picked Fedora as number one and Kubuntu as number two. Gah. Slackware wasn't even on my list. I love Slackware. Heh.

z1p November 12th, 2006 09:11 PM

It recommended Fedora, Ubuntu, and MEPIS. I only have RH and Fedora right now, maybe its time to play with something new.

Ah very interesting......

Thank you for the info Smurfy :) (I think it would be interesting looking @ Mandriva)

Answerth January 15th, 2007 09:48 PM

i got kubuntu mandriva and ubuntu :)

vedder10 February 16th, 2007 01:28 AM

I'm a novice with Linux so Linspire was my number one choice. Although I have Red Hat 9 professional on dvd but I have no pc to put it on. Anyone want to donate an old laptop?

vivekaanand April 24th, 2007 11:07 PM

linux test
 
fedora, suse and ubuntu.

Fedora and ubuntu I've used both and am now using ubuntu (feisty). Suse will not run on my system. I have a dell e520 and there's an issue with the keyboard. Didn't have the problem till I upgraded the bios. Don't feel like pullin the cmos at the moment and I haven't found any other solutions yet. if you know of one please let me know. I'm looking for a downgrade option but so far no luck. Not sure what this system uses but it doesn't have a return to default option like others I've played with. cheers!

chicohonda02 May 4th, 2007 12:34 AM

thats a cool link. all the suggested one to cchoose told me my pc might to slow. LOL

techimatt August 12th, 2007 06:38 PM

I run Ubuntu but I got OpenSUSE 1st and and Fedora 2nd... Ubuntu came 3rd

jeabus October 10th, 2007 04:43 PM

1. Gentoo
2. Arch
3. Slackware

I primarily use Gentoo now, and I started with Slack. This things a little creepy ;)

Anavel November 15th, 2007 03:21 PM

OpenSuSE, and Kubuntu. Funny I had Kubuntu and replaced it with PCLinux which was not mentioned.

Pi rules June 3rd, 2008 02:08 AM

I found a similar test:
http://polishlinux.org/choose/quiz/

I retook the original test now that I've used Linux as my primary OS for a while:
1) Gentoo
2) Slackware

The other test gave me:
1. Gentoo Linux
2. FreeBSD
3. OpenBSD
4. NetBSD
5. Slackware Linux

1. Fedora
2. Archlinux
3. KateOS
4. Ubuntu
5. Debian

I use Arch primarily and have for awhile.
