    Default What is the deciding factors on what Distro you use?

    Is it the community

    Desktop

    Ease of install

    Wireless support

    Or video support?

    Size of a distro? "DVD/CD"

    Package Manager?

    Or amount of time for a distro update. " Suse 6-8 months"

    One example for me is Ubuntu. It is a very nice distro and rated at the top.
    But between the ugly and boring desktop and it being Gnome I don't use it."KDE person"
    I also try and use a distro that matches my hardware.

    I didn't want to do a survey.Because I thought there would be a lot of varied answers.

    I seen this posted on another community.And thought it was a good question.
    And thought it would be interesting seeing what your thoughts are on this.

    My company produces the distro.
    My computer always used to beat me at chess, but it is no match for me since I changed the competition to kick boxing

    Great KDE support

    Great Community Support

    Great YAST

    More of a "get ready to work" workstation feel out of the box.

    I like green too.

    First lemmie ust say i dont fully understand how to activate quick reply

    anyways my deciding point between distros was a mixture of the ease to set up wireless internet and the community that helped me to do it.

    Greens a pretty color too
