wow, you took the words right out of my mouth.  based on what we see at
the installfests, i would've said:

1. mandrake
2. redhat
2. suse or debian

corel and caldera were pretty popular about 1.5 years ago, but nobody
has asked for them for quite some time.

and like bill, the only time i ever hear of slackware is when people say
"i used to use slackware, but then i moved to XXXX" where XXXX is
usually suse or debian.
