Any thoughts on using Fedora? It looks pretty sleek, but can you learn basic command line functions on it? I'm looking for something to learn on, and also be productive.

yes all linux distros are the same as far as command line goes, the only difference is the gui and how they handle packages

And the gui is usually gnome/kde which can be put on any distro. So essentially it comes down to package management and user base.

I recommend the new OpenSUSE 11.0 if you are looking for a professional, polished Linux OS. I personally love it. It has some nice improvements over the prior versions.

I just down loaded the full 5 dvd set of Lenny, going to be awhile before I play with it. Only ran Potato long ago when it was new and did not have enough drive space at the time to keep to OS's going and had too many windows games to discard it.
Review I read says this debian distro comes with a nice beginners install gui as an option. Probably wont use that. I like things to be hard. It's the only way to learn

I've been on the ArchLinux site for a while and I still can't seem to find what desktop environment it uses. GNOME/KDE/Xfce. And how you go about choosing them when their isn't a flavor ISO.

I prefer GNOME but KDE seems to be good as well. Xfce uses less resources but I have plenty of RAM so I could care less. I was looking into the newer Ubuntu 9.04 alpha 5, but ArchLinux looks interesting to me. Could anyone help me out?

edit: Out of the box, when I go through installing (ArchLinux) do I chose one? Also, should I use ext4 or ext3?
Isn't ext4 the next step up in Linux?

I was trying really hard to decide between Fedora and Linux Mint. I liked Fedora because it seemed like it was on the very bleeding edge as far as always including the most recent versions and stuff, and Linux Mint was attractive because of the cleanliness and everything was there and ready to work right out of the box with no effort.

I tried to install the Fedora 11 Beta ('cause we want bleeding edge, right?) but the installation wouldn't recognize my plain vanilla SATA hard drive... so I'm running Linux Mint now.

kinda a late post
but arch installs to just command line. Its more akin to old Stage 3 gentoo install. Meaning just a base system is installed and the rest you choose. I recommend it for more intermediate to advanced use, but a beginner can get it installed following the guides they have online. That being said - I tried arch on my home PCs, and didn't care much for it. I do however have it installed on my work PC and like it - its extremely fast due to no bloat like other distros.

as for home PCs... ubuntu all the way. Last week i got bored and loaded up 5-6 different distros - fedora, linuxmint, etc. Hated all of them.

tried these in the past 2 days:
ubuntu lite
damn small linux
puppy linux
debian
ubuntu hardy and jaunty

finally found vector linux and am using the lite version on this old compaq presario here. it works good enough. i might buy some SDram to make this faster.

wanted to avoid having the family buy a new desktop since we already ahve a good laptop but wanted something else to check email and stuff.

my windows 7 rc install wouldn't recognize an older wireless usb adapter I had so I installed Mint. (I had been wanting to for a while). Mint worked flawlessly without needing to configure anything with my wireless, or with the system it's self.

I have used some rough distros over the last 12 years, but I have to say Mint is the most user friendly distro I have seen. Maybe even more so than Windows, in a good way.
