What is it that you didn't like about Linspire? (other than the UI -
keep in mind it is just KDE...so, the theme can be changed....lol)

IMHO, I think that Xandros is really attempting to be a Windows 2000
clone...so, no go for me there...and its just plain slow.

I use openSuse as my primary distro :) And I frequently "toy" with
Gentoo...I can do stage3 installations w/o a problem, but, I still cant
quite get a stage1or stage2 to work...lol...
