Alright, first distro I tried was Gentoo. I like it alot, it's just that installation takes forever, compiling program's takes forever, and there so many things to screw up on installation that it makes in unappealing. It took takes me 11 seconds to open firefox, so I obvioulsy did something wrong. Next I try debian. I hate it. I hate the way you search for and install programs. emerge owns apt-get. So I need some suggestions. Please nothing debian based. So that mean no ubuntu. I don't know about slackware...it seems so outdated with the 2.4 kernel. But if someone can talk me into it I'll try it. If all else fails I'll go back to gentoo, and try to tweak my system.
