Since there are so few possible answers for CR polls I had to categorize. Yes I do know that Ubuntu is Debian based, but seeing as it is the most popular and arguably the most diverse Linux Flavour used by individuals, it got its own spot on the chart. (Unix is the most diverse because nearly every server that runs it uses a version tailored to its needs, but it is rare for it to be run for personal use compared to Linux distros, like Ubuntu.)
I Dont know anyone who does not use Knoppix, the same as I don't know anyone who actually Installs Knoppix.

Personally, I run a customized version of Fedora 9, I compiled it for my needs (Limited Gaming, Productivity and Anime viewing.(Yes I like to use Parenthesis but we all know that
## commenting out statements works Sooo well outside of .conf situations))
The OS base is Fedora9/Fluxbox, for the window manager/ and I use it for whatever I need to at the time, Plus its really Fscking fast, close to 12000 Fps in Glxgears.

I was supposed to use VMware so that i could run windows in the background... which is faster, slim login manager & openbox window manager or VMware?

the only one i've tried so far is ubuntu..

i switched back to windows because i was really clueless that time..

but i might check on other distros as well in the near future e.g openSUSE, arch, puppy, knoppix and dsl *for my old pc*..
