Linux

Or GNU/Linux if you're an FSF kind of guy.

I've been getting into it lately, not as a main desktop OS because muh gaymes, but I've been tinkering around with servers and stuff. Nothing much past running some game hosting servers on Lubuntu, but I've been getting much more familiar with the concept of package managers, multiuser OSs, and all that fun stuff. Trying to install Gentoo right now on an old beige machine I've got lying around (posted a story in general talk thread about donating blood and carrying the fuckers if you're interested) and it's taking forever to compile right now. I already went through this once but I fucked myself by making a user for myself, switching to him, and forgetting to give him sudo access (and forgetting the password to switch to su (oops)).

Anyways, let's have a general linux (GNU/Linux) discussion. What distros you guys like, what IDEs and WMs, what package managers, software, and all that fun stuff you guys like, and maybe even the Linux/GNU slash Linux dichotomy.

Also, inb4 "I'd just like to interject for a moment"
