There is no one distro that is better than another.It all depends on the person using.I myself perfer Slackware.I use it on my laptop.But I also like Mandrake so I put that on my desktop.I have it there cuz I'm trying to teach my sister about linux.But different people have different taste.Inside all distros are the same they are all linux.Alot of people say Red Hat is insecure (I agree) but all you have to do is secure it no need to go about calling it a bad distro.Every distro has it's pros and cons.
