yes, i never really got into debian. too big for me, and what an awkward install process! weird.
i have tried several debian based linuces but i always try to mix the repositories and stuff something up! also, i have a soft spot for mandrake in a way and i would like to find out if it has finally got over its issues (although i suspect a couple of my pet mandrake irritations will still be there, perhaps that's just the pessimist in me)
