I've been testing a new distro called ubuntu linux it's based off of Debian and comes with gnome 2.8, kernel 2.6.8. They have some interesting ideas in there. It's worth a look imo.
It uses the debian installer and does an excellent job at hardware detection for the three systmes I've installed it on. it's a great way to get a nice, current, clean, install of debian. I even had my total newbie neighbor install it and it only took him 20 minutes everything was working and he's a windows user :gasp: smile just thought i'd share.
