...and I haven't even finished installing it yet!! :D

I'm currently installing it in VMware to have a play before I decided to make the switch from Mandrake, but I'm still bootstrapping and I'm so impressed that I'm already making backups of my /home partition ready for the real event! Mandrake was beginning to get on my nerves , what with mandrake this and mandrake that being added to things like KDE and GNOME in order to make things easy for newbies. I switched from Slackware to Mandrake so I don't need my hand held - I want absolute control of EVERYTHING!!! Descending into dependency hell with RPMs was the last straw.

This is going to be a fun / nerve-wracking weekend! Expect more passionate raving when I've actually installed it!

Well, it was fun at the time - I didn't count on it still going on 11 hours later! I do have Gnome 2 by way of compensation.

It's fast! :D
