Every review I've read recently seems to follow this unoriginal pattern. Big cheers about a nice easy graphical install followed by one or two driver problems blamed on hardware manufacturers. Then the rest of the review seems to be everything worked out of the box. i guess the real answer is that distros are actually the same. we all knew it. besides a few changed directories here and there, and things put in place to inconvinence you, its all the same.
I had a nightmare the other night...i don't remember too much about it, only that i was surfing on slashdot, and noticed my karma dropping lower, and lower, and lower, and people all hated me and i was freaking out...yea, it sucked...i think i'm going to stay away from the computer more often
