I use Gentoo now; I have jumped through a progression that describes a move from binary to source:

RedHat in the old days long before Fedora; then Mandrake and SuSe for a bit of a play, then to Debian on my Web Server which prompted me to go with Ubuntu on the desktop recently and from there to Gentoo for the flexability which has been mentioned.

I have always favoured Gnome but used probably fvwm (certainly a very similar looking wm to the clean and minimalist fvwm style) way back in 1991 at Uni and now I don't know why I ever went away...

I run Gentoo on my desktop and other general purpose machines. I like
OpenBSD for dedicated boxes (but they don't usually run a WM).

After years with suse, I try some other distros, among them gentoo. Switched back to suse. Installed Demudi (debian based multimedia optomised distribution) in paralell of suse. Done the same realtime kernel on suse as on demudi.

Switched suse to gentoo with the audio pro overlay in augusti 2005. Switched Demudi to 64 Studio (another debian based multimedia distribution, more up to date as Demudi) it was a week ago. Both with fvwm.

Why I like gentoo: mainly because if have the best documentation and the best forum of all the distributions I know. And also because it is in many cases very easy to do its own ebuild in order to incorpore a foreign program in gentoo.

Why I used Demudi and now 64 studio: because they are, with gentoo's audio pro overlay, the best multimedia distribution I know.

At home:
In the past: Slackware, Gentoo, Archlinux.
Now Debian Unstable

At work I have no choice:
Windows + cygwin + fvwm (of course :-) )

I was using Ubuntu, OpenSUSE and Debian for 3 years. Liked OpenSUSE the most because of the logo to be honest. But recently i tried Fedora so... I think i like it. So i can say that i'm a Fedora user now lol.
Working as an ios app developer for 3 years now :)
