which linux distribution do you use? v.desktops

So how many linux users are on here? Which distribution do you use? I just installed the Ubuntu distribution on an old laptop i bought for dirt cheap. It was amazingly easy to install even for linux virgins like me and you can order a cd with it for free, actually they insist on sending you at least five so you can give them to your friends . It comes with a bunch of programs and games but some have restrictions. For example you can't play mp3s without installing a new player cause of the legal stuff behind it. I also downloaded RedHat Linux Fedora Core 4 x86, anyone tried it out?

now for all you 'linuxers', post your desktop (if you have one )

Genius comment.

I work with Redhat Enterprise 4.0 most of the day. However my distro of choice is Debian. No desktop, just terminal. So no screenshot.

Fedora Core 4 on my desktop and laptop, but I'm mostly a Windows user. We use Redhat in VM's (ESX) at work, but mostly Windows servers there as well.
