Mandrake is my favorite, I've run (for varying amounts of time) 6.2, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 (still on my server), 8.1 (tried 8.0 but would not install (on my SiS based system) -- 8.1 had some annonying problems -- among others the virtual terminals did not work), 8.2 (used on my workstation quite a while -- I semi-retired Windows after a few weeks with 8.2), 9.0 (very nice, and the best yet)

Aside: Even though Mandrake is (was?) based on Red Hat, I've never liked Red Hat as much or had as much luck installing it.

Debian and Debian based

Debian appeals to me because of the reputed ease of upgrading. I tried to install Debian once or twice (and tried a Debian based distro some time ago for a short period (forget the name).

Have now become aware of Libranet 2.7 which may be much easier to install (but apparently costs money -- don't know how much yet -- it could be worth it)
