A Linux distribution[1] is a version of a Unix-like operating system for computers comprising of the Linux kernel, all or part of the GNU operating system, and assorted libraries and applications. Linux distributions take a variety of forms from fully featured desktop and server operating systems to minimal environments for use in embedded systems or for booting from a floppy. To provide a unix like environment linux distributions contain a set of unix like utilities and the libraries needed to support them. In full featured distributions these are generally taken from the GNU operating system. Distributions optimized for size (for floppy booting or embedded systems) tend to use more compact alternatives like busybox and uclibc. Commercially backed distributions such as Fedora Core (backed by Red Hat), SUSE Linux (backed by Novell), Ubuntu (backed by Canonical Ltd.) and Mandriva Linux, and community projects such as Debian and Gentoo, assemble and test the software before releasing their distribution. There are currently over three hundred Linux distribution projects in active development, revising and improving their respective distributions. I use Red Hat Enterprise Linux and you?

I use Ubuntu on my desktop. Wasn't perfect in the earlier versions but it improves rapidly and from the 6.06 it has become quite good, fast and easy to install.
