I hope that you wont get disappointed with aging old stuff. :p

Currently I am using Ubuntu and am pretty much happy, 'Synaptic' is fast and quick in every thing. Hardware installation never bothered to ask any thing every thing worked out of the box for me.

I also have Debian Sarge, to compile old stuff.

sarge comes default with 2.6.8 kernel..i got
debian:/home/prakash# uname -ram
Linux debian 2.6.14-1-686-smp #1 SMP Tue Nov 1 16:06:13 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
with lm_sensors showing processor and board temperatures..... :D

Hmm i'll try out the packages from testing then. I'm using gcc, alsa and kernel from testing in my slackware right now and its way better than using defaults specially using 2.6.13 kernel instead of 2.4.31.
