Poll on Distributions Closed

Well, it was almost clear, plenty of people have voted for a review of the new Scientific Linux 6, and that's how it will be. Still need a bit more time though, we'll have another review before this.

It's been a bit quiet from my side because I've been busy finishing Fallout NV with almost 200 hours of game play- discounting the reloading, exploring of different avenues, going back to a previous save etc. Cool game, almost as good as the predecessor Fallout 3 with Broken Steel add-on installed. And apparently they both work well with Wine (Gold status). If you're playing it on the PC there are also cool mods available from the fan community, although some are a bit dodgy and definitely not politically correct. Apparently the aim of one is to make it look more like Return To Castle Wolfenstein. That entails lots of insignia and black clad storm troopers. The Zombie mod is fun though, although it's really just a variation of the ghouls in the game.

Ok, for posterity, the results are as follows:

Votes: 179, multiples were possible


Scientific Linux 6 69 (38%)
Mageia 38 (21%)
SimplyMEPIS 11 33 (18%)
Slackware 13.x 31 (17%)
Sabayon KDE/Gnome 30 (16%)
VectorLinux 7.0 25 (13%)
Unity Linux or Unity E17 23 (12%)
Mandriva 2011 22 (12%)
Frugalware 1.4 21 (11%)
DragonFly BSD 19 (10%)
Other specialist tools 17 (9%)
GhostBSD 13 (7%)
WattOS 9 (5%)
GNUstep Live CD 9 (5%)
MidnightBSD 8 (4%)
Frenzy BSD Live CD 8 (4%)





Perhaps the biggest surprise to me was that interest in Mandriva came in below VectorLinux 7 and only just above Frugalware. The other section includes specialist purpose distributions like Backtrack, NST, or Vinux.
You'll be able to read about most of these during the course of the year then. Thanks again for taking part!
