I need some advice from a 'non-fanboi' board.
I have tried Ubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora Core 8, Debian 'Etch' and Debian 'Lenny' on my home PC.
I have some issues with 'Etch' with the sound card not being loaded properly (updated ALSA would likely fix that) and the network card being reported oddly with network tools.Intel DP965LT C2D E6600 Nvidia 8800GTS 320
I am torn between KDE / Gnome but a slight lean on Gnome.
So I am curious what Distros people like -- and the reasons you like them.
Thanks (no flame wars please)
