I'm up to about 30 or so distros that I've played with. I'm waiting for the new KDE version of Ultimate Edition from Theeman. It'll be for the more moderate to advanced user, but will be packed with awesome features.

Ultimate Edition distros are forked from Ubuntu and Mint. That being said I don't see how a new Desktop Environment (KDE) would change the skill-level "required" of the user. Both of the distros it's forked from were both forked from Debian...that being said they're usually very easy to work with.

..hey, that's what they said...

..so that's the linux I use in my laptops...
I heard pure Debian didn't exist truly anymore I was trying to understand DD-WRT and flashrouter technology at the time

Jessie's Running percectly and apt hit's every time with roughly 50,000 available packages that are considered stable.

I tried some distros, each for several years, running fedora now since 2 years. The main difference is that the red hat people are real experts. If there is a problem, they can help.
