Linux, My operating system of choice
I have been using Linux since 1995 in the server environment, and have not willingly used anything else, in Aug. 2001 I made my move to Linux for my desktop.
I have grown to love the Gentoo Linux distribution by using it as my personal computers operating system, it has proven it's performance and reliability, as well as ease of management and operation.
Gentoo Linux is a source based distribution, and utilizing it's portage system of package management makes for easier updates and for me, an end to the dependancy issues that I always ran into with RPM based distributions.
