Gentoo is the shit if you take the time to optomize it.

I ran Slackware with Dropline for a long time. I tried KDE after having used Dropline/GNOME for about a year and KDE is so much cleaner and less bloated.

Then I switched to Debian and I have to say it is a true Linux Distro with, from what I have experienced, all the stability of Slackware but one of the best package management utilities.

I can run Synaptic and get any package with no problems. Installing CUPS took three clicks. No way would things have been like that in Slackware.

If you don't like bloat try afterstep. It's a pain in the ass to get it set up just perfect, but when you do you won't know how you lived without it.

if your new to linux and need it for the desktop try xandros. its not very free but ive got the ISO's of the deluxe version and burned them from shareaza its debian based and runs windows apps pretty good. but over all for the experianced user id suggest gentoo or another source based distro no ifs ands or buts. stay away from redhat/fedora/mandrake/suse. even though i love that novel and sun have taken up suse rpm based distros cause lots of problems

i didnt read the post or any of the replies. The answer to the title of your post however is without question, FreeBSD.

gentoo for NOOBS AND OLDSCHOOLERS.

as a noob you will learn more about linux in the first HOUR of installing gentoo then you will installing any 'easy to install distro' in months.

obviously if you are an experienced user you know the advanages of a ports based setup, all compiled software specific to your architechure and machine.. and 100% control over everything.

i'm reading about installing gentoo right now. it looks like pretty heavy stuff. i'm gonna see if i'm nerd enough to do it. i'm thinking i'll do a stage3 tarball. my comp isn't hooked up to internet but it will be later. that's not a problem, is it?

I read on linuxquestions.org that installing software on Gentoo takes quite a while since everything is built from source.

Unlike Debian where i can apt-get k3b or something. In Gentoo you would emerge k3b which would then compile the whole program.

I guess it's cool if you have the time to waste and want that much control getting the last drop of performance. Debian runs quite fast with no stability issues I've run into and I"m running the Sarge (unstable) version.

The install for Debian sucks though. KDE wouldn't even load till I did an apt-get upgrade. And I think just about the only NIC it recognizes is a 3com one. I had to manually install my Linksys.

I use Suse. I think it is very usuable,but isn't dumbed down.And it comes with a shitload of software (may not be a good thing for a mininalist or someone who doesn't like to go through hundreds of packets.)

I really don't see why people like Redhat/Fedora so much. They refuse to comply to standards and I think the configuration programs and Gnome are ugly as hell.

It doesn't really matter that much though. It's all the same kernal and you can customize any distro to your liking.

lol, someone voted for Knoppix for server

that's probably because you configured the poll so that one is required to vote in order to view the results. someone who wants to see the results, but has never used linux and knows very little about it (such as myself) would probably just click random options in order to view the results (i know that's what i did).
