    Try sidux

    Its a distro based on debian Sid where you get the latest packages and it's very well supported and has a very active user community. As this distro is 100% debian compatible, its a good way to try debian without the hassle.

    Go here for info on sidux:

    My first was slackware back in '96. It now seem my last will be Ubuntu 8.04. I'm so tired of this now.

    Tried a few in the begining Mandrake,Redhat,Corel around 99/2000 I think

    Setled with Mandrake 7.1, my first Powerpack 8.1

    Tried no end since, thought Sabayon is a nice distro just cant get on with the package management. Think I prefer rpm based

    Stuck with Mandrake/Mandriva currently on 2009.

    Not had windoze in for 3 + years now.

    I started with Red Hat 6.0 back in 1999, next I went testing 6.1, 6.2 and finally got sick and bored from RedHat in 7.0.

    Then, word passed to me of a distro named Debian, installed Sid and for the first time I got a taste of bleeding edge.

    Years after, I got tired from the bleeding edge and just for lazyness I started to use Xubuntu 8.04 and now Xubuntu 8.10.

    And of course, I've messed around with FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Solaris.

    My first was Slackware back in '95 or so. I remember making it look just like win95 (yeah yeah). It was mostly a hmm, look at this, that's neat, now back to windows to run my apps and games. I really got into Linux with Redhat 5.1 and stayed with it through Fedora Core 4. Running a web/email server for about 10 years. Then switched to Ubuntu Gutsy 64bit server because I liked Ubuntu on my desktop. I'm running 64bit Intrepid on all my pcs (6) full time, except one that runs windows xp for gaming. I still try just about every Distro I can get my hands on though. Seems lately I download them, and don't have time to install before a newer version comes out.

    Red Hat Linux 6.2 in 2000 for me, stayed with RHL but in little use and mostly as a file server until the last release and then moved to what would become debian sarge. I got tired of waiting for etch and moved to ubuntu feisty, and during that time I finally felt linux was getting ready to be my primary desktop after seven years(!). With the release of gutsy I made the jump and have now used it fully for 15 months.

    My first? Fedora Core 3. Lasted until I discovered portage, and a package manager that didn't break under the abuse I gave it. I've been a Gentoo user ever since.
