    I've currently switched back to Xubuntu for the time being. I'm still looking for my perfect distro which would have the stability of Debian Stable and the up to date software of Debian Testing* which is a pipe dream I know as they are mutually exclusive. Backports does help but it's not the same.

    LMDE comes close with it's "incoming" and "latest" repositories but they were rarely updated and with all the things the Mint team are doing I wonder about the future viability of what was an experimental project.

    * I guess that would be "Debian Stabbing" then

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
    It'll happen to you too."

    Yes unfortunately such a distro does not exist. The best approach, in my opinion, is stable with backports, combined with your own backported stuff.

    I chose the distribution in the transition from Windows. I installed Debian on all computers.
    The first six months I used the stable branch (Lenny). After I passed to testing. I'm happy with my choice.

    Now I use Debian Wheezy amd64

    Currently running Fedora 16 with Gnome, but undecided as to whether to stay with Gnome or switch to xfce.

    What sort of tweaks have you made to make it look better? I've not managed to get this working so far so I'd be interested in knowing what it can do.

    Personally I don't like Gnome3 - It missing the application/places/system start menu bars and We can't add shortcut icons to desktop panel or desktop. Default Desktop switcher was annoying , So I was try to get them back as far as possible.

    I played with gnome-tweak-tool items like "Desktop" and "Shell" - i started to feel better.
