The return of the linux test

Place to discuss anything, almost. No politics, religion, Microsoft, or anything else that I (the nazi censor) deem inappropriate.

It told me Fedora, but I picked RPM instead of DEB. I wonder if I had said I didn't care on that screen what I would have got. I'll try it again later.

It told me Kubuntu, Debian, Mepis or Mandrive.
I didn't get to choose between .rpm or .deb though, not that it would have made much difference ...

took it twice, told me debian or slackware depending on whether i chose a system a few years old or really old.

Something about fedora not having KDE as default prevented it from coming up.

I got Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Mandriva...

I found foresight though and I think it looks sweet!

I am interested in this distro but I wonder how hard it would be for me...

Seems like pretty standard stuff you can do with gnome, but it looks nice indeed.
This conary stuff on the other hand ... I don't know, for me I'd rather stick with an .rpm or .deb distro, whenever I'm working on a distro or on another platform :oops: on which apt is not available I just feel impaired.

When I took the test again with all my preferences and picked "I don't care" for package type instead of RPM it gave me this:

Debian
Fedora
Ubuntu

Which is just about right. I think picking them on my own for Desktop (which is the category I picked) I would normally order them like this:

Fedora
Debian
Ubuntu

I have had a lot of thoughts of ditching Fedora for Debian so maybe the test is accurate for me. :)

Well I am serious about Ubuntu or foresight but like I said I wonder how easy foresight is to use....

I am also thinking about SLED 10...

Oh mitzelplick! (u like that one?) I forgot to put mine up... It's kind of creepy how it's been right on for most...

Ubuntu - Which I am running...
Debian

then

Kubuntu
Fedora
Mandriva

I don'y understand why it keeps seperating Kubuntu from Ubuntu, isn't the only difference KDE v Gnome?
