ELX - meh.
ELX was the first linux I tried. Yes, it was userfriendly and all, but (last I checked) the EverybodysLinux websites and organization never quite coalesced. In other words, no real support.
By poking around a little trying to figure out basics like 'what kernel am I running?', and 'what software should I try installing?' I realized that ELX was a Fedora derivative -- and that it would be simpler to move closer to the original source. So, I dumped it, and I'd suggest you do the same, if you haven't already. I went to a Fedora Core 3 install courtesy of an old "Linux for Dummies" DVD, and from there straight to Fedora 7, which it what I'm running now.
Fedora 7 is my current favorite!
I've tried other LiveCD's -- MEPIS, SuSE, PCLinuxOS, Morphix. I'm investigating a new release called "Mint", haven't installed it yet.
I'm finding I like certain KDE apps, but from my formerly WinXP-centric standpoint, I like Gnome interfaces better. You can google for Gnome-based distros.
