Linux Users:

What Linux distribution are you using?
Which is your favorite?
What do you use it for?


I've been using Ubuntu for about 2.5 years. I prefer to strip a lot of stuff I don't need out, like office apps, and add things like gcc, emacs, eclipse, java, etc. I use it mainly for development and also as a home file/web server.

I'm just curious if there is another great distro out there to try. I've been playing around with gNewSense, and also contemplating creating my own distro for the hell of it.

I use Debian for my main server: web, email, samba, mysql, php etc... administered through ssh. I dual boot Ubuntu 7.04 on my main box for fun, and run Xubuntu (lower system requirements, runs fce as a window manager) on my older laptop, runs great.
