Alright, so this list is gonna be long, I'll post what I believe to be the best/most popular:

I personally have fallen in love with Gentoo, however slackware falls in second and stable debian (sarge) falls in third.

I tried to install Kubuntu but never succeeded. GRUB seems to be far too retarded to point to the effing installation.

I'm thinking about trying Gentoo next. I'm just bummed, because I really wanted to use a Debian-based system.

you can chroot into your environment and point grub to the correct partitions of the kernel you know...

i had kubuntu installed on my laptop. well.. i got it running. thats about it. i found that its good for learning how the operating system interacts with and installs hardware but ive got really no drive to learn it.

Not if you can't start GRUB, (error 17) thus never being able to configure it or even access your newly installed system.

FIXMBR on the XP install disc is my best friend now.

We have some computers that use Solaris and some others that use Red Hat and probaly a few others as well. I voted Solaris just 'cause that's the only one I've used. Linux is pretty popular in geek building on campus (where I work, study, and nearly live at times), but I haven't figured out why really. I always ask people who use linux why they use it and the most I can come up with is that linux makes it hard as hell to do anything because it's much more manually driven, so these guys get off from the accomplishment of being able to do things such as install a simple program using the difficult interface.

You know, a whole support thread on the Kubuntu forums and nobody mentioned this. Zomg.
