Why's everybody so taken with Suse? The decent version isn't even free, its startup screen is butt ugly, and I had to reformat 3 times because the bugger wouldn't install properly.

And after all that it was rubbish anyway.

Ummm, why don't you just type in *Nix. If you'd name each distro then it'd be more appropriate but limiting us to a few distros. That's something a Windows user would try to do...

Gentoo gets my vote but you've conviently excluded it...

In response to someone's bash on Suse, sorry, but my install (OpenSuse 10.0) was able to resize my WinXP partition, install itself (extremely easily) and work very well (in fact, I am running it now.)
