    After about 20 months, I think Poll IV has done it's finest, so here's a nice fresh new version.

    Cast your votes in "The Great OcUK Distro/Derivative Poll V" :D

    Ubuntu vote here. I've tried RedHat and Fedora in the past but just didn't get on as well them.

    I like ubuntu's wiki as well which has probably helped my learning process.

    Can I be awkward and specify Solaris?

    And as a second choice, SCO Xenix (I became a qualified SCO Xenix Engineer in 1989 :D )

    Well. I tried Ubuntu and found it rather difficult / impossible to get the LAN setup with the other Win XP computers. I have now installed Fedora and most of the work was done for me on install. I've got a lot to learn but it looks good so far.

    Oh, I've install fedora 4 so am hoping that Fedora 6 will be even better.
