I like gentoo, DSL (damn small linux), and ubuntu. Ubuntu is one of my favorites since it's so damn simple to use and it boots instantly.

One vote for slack.
Plus LFS, that was fun.. But it took up a good amount of time. Sure learned a lot, though! :D

I don't use Linux any more, but Gentoo and the various Ubuntu flavours are my favourites.

Also running Ubuntu. I think this old hard drive is going as it doesn't boot instantly!
I got tired of Windows and it's activation policy and I currently have the time.
Even the wife can use it for web browsing and word processing no problem.

I think America's Army can run on linux, at least it used to.
There's Doom 3, Quake 4, Quake Wars and a lot of Enemy Territory mods.
Otherwise there's not much for new commerical games.

RHEL5 on my dev machine, Fedora 10 on my office machine, Centos on my cluster machines, Solaris on the main fileserver.

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Am using fedora 10 but will try gentoo and debian in near future.
Have not been successful with games under wine, but have been too busy to give it a real go.
Got plenty of time to play coming up though :D
