Which Linux Distro Do You Use?

Recommended Posts

Just interested in which distro you are using.

I was an avid Ubuntu user, but since its so easy and there are so many, I am venturing out.

Right now I am looking at OpenSUSE and possibly Fedora.

I like Mandriva, currently only have Ubuntu installed though. There was a poll about this not so long ago but I can't find it.

Sure you can play games. I've got Ubuntu and I can play solitaire, tetris, nibbles, and minesweeper! :D

You can't really play games on Linux. The code is too different from Windows.

Wine!

It seems like the compatibilities have come a long way :)

 

PS: I'm an OpenSUSE user (10.1, 10.2, 10.3)

Most linux distros are native 64-bit, so the memory should be no problemo...however, quad SLI just sounds like a linux nightmare (I could never get SLI working on my GF's computer...and we finally switched her 2x6600GTs to a 6800GT).

 

I would not even attempt to play with Wine if you're not good with linux, and love to tinker. Some games require forcing older versions of direct x to work properly (8 or before...). Go take a look at specific games that you like to play, and see if they're supported, or what problems users are having.
