Explain why the distribution you use is superior to everybody else's.

Do what the title says. I'll do mine with Gentoo. Yours doesn't need to be as long as mine, I just like to overachieve on the internet.

Hi there. This is Gentoo. It's a good distribution. Yours isn't. You know why?

SECTION I: Community.

This is a very important factor when considering a distribution, as you don't want to share your opinion with illiterate 8 year olds. It's why I don't play Call of Duty, Battlefield, or DoTA. Let's look at Ubuntu's community.

(quoting from an actual post on the ubuntu forums)

can my ubuntu hack by someone??

my friend made a bet with me to come live with skype if i tell him my ip address he said he can hack my ubuntu delete fiels he also said he can get the my username passworld for my isp i dont know anything about ubuntu

what should i do am i safe can he hack?

Oh look! A technologically impaired person! Turns out, this isn't very uncommon in the Ubuntu community. Now let's see a typical newcomer to the gentoo community.

(actual post from the gentoo forums)

Dear All,

I had a few update (say, the update of 3 weeks) without restart my laptop.

Today after a reboot, I don't visualize correctly characters when writing in a terminal (Xfce Terminal Emulator).

I dont know much how to explain this... Simply when I open the terminal and write in there, it's not possible to recognize the characters I type.

Other applications (ie firefox) seems to work and visualize things correctly

Any suggestions? What should I check?

What a gentleman. He:

* Uses proper grammar

* Can Google his problems

* Is straightforward with his question

* Probably drinks fine wine, wears suits, is a connoisseur of aged cheeses, and has a monocle (or two).

Section II: Included software.

Included software is a necessity. If any modern OS came without a browsProxy-Connection: keep-alive

Cache-Control: max-age=0

or command line, what would you do with your life? Let's see Ubuntu's included software.

* Bluetooth analyzer

* Calculator

* Firefox

* other generic software

Boring. Gentoo comes with exciting programs like:

* Funzip (It has fun in the name. Even compressing files is fun in gentoo.)

* Sandbox (How can a child's toy not be fun on Gentoo?)

* Mailbot (Robots are badass.)

Section III: Portage

apt-get install audacious

emerge audacious

Have you ever been strapped to a bomb and the only way to deactivate it is to install a program, and the difference between life and death is a few letters? I have. Enough said.

Arch Linux is the best because it's lightweight, and you can make whatever you want out of it.

Debian. Simply because its easy, iPhones and perfect for dedicated servers :p that's all really.

Not a huge Linux person and not going to go in depth on my reasons, but through the versions I did try out I preferred Linux Mint Cinnamon. Felt easy to use, lightweight, and styling was good.

Currently using linux mint 16 cinnamon .. It is forked off Debian and Ubuntu.

 

No complains thus far.

 

Installed on VMware player 6 without issues.

 

Only fault so far which pisses me is the new login screens.. some new login screens have weird UI ..

Raspbian, its a custom build off of Debian for the Raspberry Pi, extremely light weight, easy to use, old school looking GUI ( nostalgia) just a lovely OS in general

Arch Linux.

I can customize all I want, change the system all I want, install what I want, configure it all I want, I get the latest versions of packages (stable). Community is good.
