Just moved to SL which is based off RHEL 
 
Is that some sort of 4th of July popsicle? lol
 
+Jerry Hildenbrand I know it has probably come up before, but what distribution do you use or are you a roll-your-own kind of guy?
 
+Casey Keller I use Gentoo on my laptop, which is my primary machine. On things like media and file servers, I stick with Slackware.

As I'm in the process of setting up a new home server, I'm checking out RHEL again. I like to keep up with the changes when I can.
 
+Jerry Hildenbrand I have enjoyed Gentoo in the fast.  Worked wonders on my old PII.  The compile times were a trade-off, but the benefits were nice.  The ability to determine exactly what you need is nice.  I am quite partial to Arch for the same reasons.  The rolling release plus the AUR gives the benefits of Gentoo less the compile time.

Lately, I have been in Kubuntu and openSUSE land.  Kubuntu for a desktop has been good for my needs (for the most part, I am considering going back to Arch).

Slackware and Red Hat were my first distributions... back in 1996.
 
Ubuntu itself has presented a number of problems for me lately.  Kubuntu, however, seems to be immune to them.  I really do like KDE for a full featured desktop environment, however, I love the tiling of Awesome.  I know there is supposed to be a way to get them to jive together, but I have not succeeded yet with it.
 
+David Boshears sort of a bukakke of bomb pops.Very tasteless and not fit for anything remotely family friendly. Sort of like me :)

+Casey Keller Anytime I can be plugged in, KDE is the way to go. 
 
+Jerry Hildenbrand I love the ability to configure and the sheer beauty of oxygen in KDE.  I am just sad that tiling support will be gone in 4.10 (even if was buggy already).  If I can just get Awesome and KDE to play nice, I will be a very happy camper.
