    I will let this run for now. But, if anyone starts distro trolling, I am deleting those replies. Just vote for what you feel is the best.
    You can put forth the points that you feel makes it a worthy choice. But, do not compare it with any other distro. That just creates unnecessary fighting.
    And you'll cannot delete/destroy any threads, that power is reserved for us moderators and admins. Anyways no need to delete that thread now. Maybe it will get cleaned up in time.

    That is reserved for mods/admins. We have the power to modify/delete other members post, if there is any need.

    You bet I am :D

    So I would like vote for Gentoo Linux. It is one of those rare distributions that listens to you and acts according to your choices instead of wanting you to follow some pre-defined settings...which some developer thought would be good for you.

    Manshahia, CentOS is a community maintained enterprise distribution which is actually developed from RHEL's source packages and provides support independently.

    I haven't cos I am not that fond of Red Hat/ Fedora core. And anyways I'd rather prefer Fedora Core over CentOS cos I believe former has a lot more user and contributer base than the latter. And that makes a difference in lot of ways.
