Default Re: what is the best linux to use.

There is Redhat still available, but it costs more. It is Fedora with extras on top.
Fedora itself is decent. It has a friendly installer. Ubuntu I hear is very good.

The following site recently had a survey on which distros were more popular:

Hopefully that can help you Coldwater.

LFS is too time consuming. It takes too long to make and any mistake, you have to start all over. i'd say Gentoo is better than it.
