ive been around linux (not really into it - switching between it and windows all the time) since redhat 7.3..
currently - actually for about a year now - ive been looking for the perfect distro that fits me, what i actually need in a distro is:
java and c/c++ development support (with ides and settings working out of the box)
internet and messaging
graphic and website designing
and a really important part: performance
the best 2 - out of the 15+ distros ive tried - were fedora core 4 and ubuntu, but both lacked something, fedora lacked performance and is really bloated with packages (even with custom installation), and ubuntu lacked development support..
what do you guys suggest? maybe some distro passed by me and i didn't notice or something :)
thanks for the much appreciated help :)
