Saw this on Reddit and was curious as to what you guys would awnser!

For me it would be exherbo or killx
Those were both weird to use

Maybe Ystradol (not sure I've spelt it right), as it was the first distributed Linux, from what I remember.
In the earlier days, live CDs where pretty weird. :) (The first Knoppix.)

Linux BBQ is really cool, I stole their homepage css for my old startpage and I used the no x release for awhile!

Those two are a bit strange but probably not the strangest.

Suicide Linux
RLSD

EDIT: GoboLinux is also strange as it uses a completely different approach.

When I still used Linux (some time in the 90s), there was a distribution named WinLinux, probably the first distribution of Linux which came with a Windows installer. Other than that, it was a pretty normal KDE desktop system IIRC.

For me it would be RedStar OS. The North Korean Linux Distro... The strangest thing, at least for me, was that they took something that kinda stands for freedom and twisted it in a way, that it works as an instrument for oppression...

The weirdest distro I ever saw is definetely Ubuntu. :-P

[EDIT] Sorry, this looks like flaming. Ubuntu is all right for many of my peers, and I'm ok with it.

Very sad way to run linux. But then you also distribute to people a way to escape from control and censorship, so I guess they did a lot to prevent this.
