What distro would you suggest today for developing?

I use Gentoo in my office since 4 years and am very happy with it.
What terrify me is the recompiling time of the graphical environment ... not required on a production server...

What about the latest OpenSuse 10.X ? I had a complete desktop distro in a few clics...but don't know about development.

Some lights?

Using Mandriva since co-founding OE. I regularly try alternatives but always come back.

I use Fedora 4/5... works fine for me... plus all the require packages are easily installable but using the livna repo's.....

Thx guys

Now just let see whether Mandriva and Fedora have a recent lilo...you know, /boot will start on the 100th GB of my disk...

Upgrade:

Finally I installed ArkLinux.

The 2006.1 release is very neat and I have to say that installing bitbake 1.4.2 and monotone 0.28 was really quick 'n easy.
No missing deps, no problems at all! All done in 20 min.

Cheers

IMHO nothing compares to Gentoo..."Linux from scratch" perhaps...
Portage is simply amazing!

Both Debian and Ubuntu are just great. apt/dpkg is as powerfull as portage (yes, you can even compile your own Debian), choice of packages is unbelievable.
I was using Debian for several years, still using it on servers, but I switched to Kubuntu on desktop. I'm at the stage when you don't really have time to make your favourite mail program running, and on Kubuntu everything just works.

Doesn't the latest Kubuntu use GCC4.x ?

I have enough problem with GCC4.x in Arklinux...
Gentoo 2006.1 also defaults to GCC 4.x ...

Unfortunately the status of "GCC 4.1 vs. OE" patches is (to me) unclear...

gcc 4.1 as default on host is OK as long you have gcc-3.4 or gcc-3.3 or gcc32 in PATH somewhere installed.

This is because we use QEmu to generate locale packages during build and it need gcc 3.x to build.

Yes, and tlaking back about Ubuntu, you've got several gcc packages. You can switch between them using alternatives mechnism.
