All of you who responded...Thanks! Coming from an OpenBSD background I can appreciate any attempt to be more secure. Also having worked with a lot of Solaris systems, I can appreciated sacrificing a little speed for more reliability and stability. Currently I run Ubuntu on my desktop at work, and as much as I like the speed of it and the user-friendliness of APT, I am getting a little tired of it's quirks. The longer it stays up without a reboot, the slower it gets. If Fedora is as good as some of you say, I will give it another shot and see how it feels. Thanks again.

I have never seen APT get slower the longer a computer is running. APT has always been quick and rock-solid for me.

No, I'm sorry if my statement was vague. I meant that my Ubuntu system, as a whole, gets slower the longer it runs without a reboot. APT for me is also is also fast and rock solid. As much as I do love Ubuntu and I do think it has come incredibly far in its short life, I still think it needs more work; or maybe I just need a change. Regardless of which it may be, I will now go download FC7 and see if I have a new favorite. Maybe I just have Linux A.D.D. and can't stick with any distro too long ;)
