How about an informal poll (probably not here, though!).
In my experience as an educator (I do contract Linux training), students
that want to learn Linux will choose SUSE for use at home (more eye
candy). Sometimes a student whose company is running RHEL will choose
Fedora to use at home, in order to have the same core. Sometimes not.
I would say the ratio is roughly 2:1 OpenSUSE vs. Fedora. I bring DVD-Rs
of both to training classes with me to give away, and I will often compare
usability issues between distros during breaks -- multimedia and
suspend/resume support being the most often discussed areas.
I switched away from RHL back around v7.3. I still have a couple of boxes
for experimenting with Mandriva, Linspire, m0n0wall, and others from
to post comments)
