"DD: Talking about the open source, what is your choice of favourite Linux distribution, desktop environment, applications? Why?

"KN: I've played around with several Linux distributions, but for my daily computing I'm still on Ubuntu 10.10, or Maverick Meerkat. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that, since it's several versions back, but somehow I just haven't gotten comfortable enough with Unity yet to go with it on my main PC, which I have set up in a dual-boot scenario with Windows 7. I also like Linux Mint a lot, though, and have that running on a laptop. As for applications, I use LibreOffice exclusively for my writing and related stuff, as well as GIMP for when I have to work with images. I'm on the latest Firefox for Web stuff, though I also have Chrome and my son (also a budding geek) is trying to get me to try out Opera. Thunderbird is my e-mail package."
