I have been using Puppy Linux solely on one of my computers for about a year now/ I find I use it about 30% of the time. It is a super lightweight at 50mb but but once I install OpenOffice that was all she needed.

what is the best linux distro made?

This could be argued til the end of time.Every one has their own favorite.
I had multiple problems with RedHat and Suse configuring video and sound
(i use dual sound cards)
I used Mandrake for years until they went Mandriva and it just didn't suit me.
Now I'm running PCLinuxOS and everything "works". I have had to do very
little configuration on the hardware side. Give it a try:
http://www.pclinuxos.com
It runs as a LiveCD to play around and get comfortable with then you
can install it to your hard drive and you're all set.

hi bandaid...just some friendly advice, you should probably start a new thread with your question as this doesn't fit the topic here and so that somebody will see it. i can't really answer your question because i'm not sure how to either. maybe right click but then i don't know what to do next.

to get on topic i'll say i don't know what my favorite is, loooooooooool. i have mdv 2006 installed and i like to run all the live cd's. i'll probably put pclos on my next machine. no offense but what is the big attraction to ubuntu? i don't understand why it's so popular. maybe i'm too new to linux to understand.
I can no longer sit back and allow Microsoft infiltration, Microsoft indoctrination, Microsoft subversion, and the international Microsoft conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious open source GNU/Linux operating systems. General Jack D. Ripper.

I've heard way too much about Ubuntu now...

I'm trying it (Ubuntu 6.0.6) and I have to say it's quite an enjoyable distro...I just have to get used to tar.bz2's and deb files now...
