Basically, on this subject, I'm with you. Which Linux you use is like
religion, what works for YOU is best. If you don't like Fedora, there
is Slackware (yes it is still there but under a different name?), Ubuntu
and many other Linux distributions. What DOES matter here is how you
use Wine and if Wine works for you.

> I recently set up a Linux machine after several years of being stuck with only Windows. I've used Linux from as far back as when you had to load Slackware from a stack of floppies. When I loaded Linux on my current machine I picked Fedora just because I was familiar with Red Hat. Now, I'm beginning to question the wisdom that decision. Fedora seems a bit too Windows-like for my tastes. I'm currently leaning toward switching to Debian. I understand that Debian normally is not the most bleeding-edge distribution and is fiercely dedicated to only distributing free software. I see a lot of Wine applications reported for Ubuntu and was wondering if there's any particular reasons why I'd want to pick one distribution over the other for use with Wine?

Please do not start flame wars. Pick anything that you want. Or anything your friend geek recommends.
