I am not trying to start a war linux vs freebsd or a long thread on which distribution is best. Just trying to get a quick answer here. I am an inconditional to freebsd and I love it. Unfortunately I have an application that doesn't support freebsd and only run on linux. I tried to run it for a week under freebsd and it doesn't work. I have to install a linux machine and don't know which distribution to take. I tried debian ubuntu and fedora and didn't like them. I want: - A basic install (not 900 packages installed by default - No gui, I like my flashing cursor - an equivalent of ports. I want to easily compile my ports I don't like prebuilt package. Want to retrieve them by cvs. - an equivalent to portupgrade. I gotta admit mabe the three I tried was able to do that, but I'm so negative about linux thay maybe I didn't see the good point of it. Could you tell me which distribution you are using when you have no choice and need to go to linux ?
