Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

You seem to have better luck than many people with debian. I can't count on one hand how many times apt-get update has borked my debian systems. After the whole gtk2/gnome2 fiasco and debian continuing on insisting on doing things "the debian way" I gave up and went to gentoo. After realizing all the time I was wasting compiling gentoo apps, I went to slackware and couldn't be happier. Maybe after this system gets older, I'll try gentoo again when compiling for my system will make a noticable difference.
