Your Top Distributions

Well the topic is very clear. Just say what are your top distributions and why :D I'll start: - Mint XFCE because of its speed and nice customizations . A wonderful job has been done to put this together. Also, if we're talking about desktop environments, XFCE is my favorite over Gnome & KDE and...

Re: Any former Frontpage users?

Has anyone tried Openoffice's writer/web? I never thought to try it cause I figured it was more-or-less like MS Word's html ability, but OOo seemed most similar to Frontpage on the surface. Tried Openoffice's writer/web and it's allright. Depending on what you want to do, you might be fine with it....

Re: Any former Frontpage users?

I used to be one. I like WYSIWYG because I need to get things done quickly but since I heard Dreamweaver was working perfectly on Linux and I used to use both, I went Dreamweaver all the way.
