lol..thanks. i really think this is exactly what i'm looking for in a distro: quick (i686 optimized), starts with a base install (you install what you want), good package manager (it even removes a whole program and its dependencies if they're not used by others...i like this a lot as i hadn't seen this feature before), quick installs (the reason i moved from gentoo...though i really do like everything else about gentoo but this), you can have a custom repository and it's fairly easy to setup (i set mine up within 5 minutes the first time i had attempted to), bleeding edge packages (a must have for me...i love having very very new stuff).Quote:

i like what you said about KDE too lol. i like KDE's completeness. it doesn't miss anything at all. the only complaint is that it is relatively resource intensive compared to other DE's and WM's and it does come with a few too many programs. but this is the trade off you'll get for getting a DE that comes complete with everything for the vast majority of people :)
for simplicity/ease of use, you can't beat kde. it might not be the quickest, but it's really easy to have set-up and it has almost everything :D
