After being pissed off at Debian testing AMD64 doing some weird shit with my virtual console I killed it off and installed this shit. Used the liveCD at first which blew ass and totally gayed out on the grub installation so I downloaded the alternate cd and installed it fine.

Anyway works well enough, lol, I really hate gnome so this is a nice departure from my previous ubuntu studio installation.

anyway a screenshot

ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu is a picky bitch, i've given up on it for fedora, much less temperamental. if i get tired of fedora i'll just go back to slackware, or maybe give arch linux a try.
Kubuntu looked like it loaded correctly, but when I restarted, it just gave me a bunch of errors. I think I may give Ubuntu a try.

what kind of errors? i've had plenty of times where it didn't set up grub correctly, i had to do it myself. i also distupgraded to 8.10 recently and it totally ruined my ubuntu install, thats what made me install fedora, i've had ubuntu ruin itself on dist-upgrade way too many times.

Yes, one of my buddies had issues when he went to 8.10. A lot of stuff wasn't supported.

With kubuntu, I actually don't remember what errors I got, it just started loading and gave me some errors, so I rebooted to windows and uninstalled.

I was going to try Kubuntu, but then I remembered how gay KDE is. :rofl: It's like they took the worst UI parts of Windows, and took it from Ryan Seacrest levels to Richard Simmons levels.

Looks nice, I don't have much of a preference between Gnome and KDE, but I tend to like Gnome's apps better. I haven't had a linux installation in too long :(

I haven't liked gnome since I first tried the initial release although I have to say, sawfish is a godlike window manager, the rest of it just kinda sucked.
