Tell us about your favorite Linux distribution!
I've used distributions based on Redhat, Suse, Slackware, Debian and
Gentoo and tried a lot of other ones listed on distrowatch. It really
depends on what I'm trying to accomplish and what problem I'm faced
with... I've developed my own Linux From Scratch before as well as
worked from a Stage 1 Gentoo installation...
For embedded development I do custom builds using BusyBox, uCLibC and
For enterprise computing using Oracle I use RHEL. (CentOS is also a good alternative.)
For day to day desktop computing I tend to use Fedora or Debian (I have
both setup at home.)
I like Monowall, Firecop and a few others for instant security oriented
In the interest of time I'll stop here but the general gist of what I'm
saying is it really depends upon the problem and how adventurous I'm

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
