@LegendKiller: tell us which one you want in the by demand thread. gOS and Jolicloud are worth a try at least.
@phuchungbhutia: this time there are extra packages, including Open Office and partitioning tools. There are a bunch of netbook distros as well, BT4, and Frenzy, a BSD based penetration testing distro.
@topgear: 9.12 for ATI (8.681 in the details), and 195.62 for NVidia (1.0.0 in the details) about a month old
