If Fedora did not exist, which distribution would you use?

Just like the topic says, I'm curious to know that if Fedora, or Red Hat for that matter, did not exist which distribution do you think you would use?

Myself, I think I would use Slackware since it seems the most "hardcore." Although I like SuSe as well since it is so user-friendly.

I would use SuSE or Mandrake. I'm currently using mac OS X Panther, which I think is the best nix out there. It has the benefits of Linux but with, in my opinion, a way better GUI. Let the flame wars beging.

For Brazilian users, the Kurumin is a very nice Distro:

It's based in Gentoo Linux with a lot of graphical tools and software as qemu and others.

Something Red Hattish, but I'm not sure what. Maybe Debian or SuSe.

hmm, I want something with gnome as default, easy tools for setup, an open community, free (as in both) and I want it to use rpm. Hmm. I'm lost.

I would probably be just sitting here with windows.......

Fedora is what finally gave me the motivation to change from ms...

what distro would i use....hmmmm.......

*sigh* I would probably would still be using windows while screaming "Why are u sooooo stupid!!!" and banging my head against some extremely dense object in my dorm room (ie. wall, bedpost, roommate, desk, door...etc) until I didnt have any brain cells left....

I started with Slack, but I've gotten spoiled by RPM management, so it'd probably be Mandrake - although if there weren't a RH, there probably wouldn't have been a Mandrake. Ye gods! A quandry!
