Dawg, I've noticed that you mentioned running Linux a few different times. I've used Gentoo for years, but it simply ain't what it used to be, and after portage broke and it was going to take me about 3 days to compile a new install on the PC I just bought, I've decided to switch. I tried Sabayon, which is Gentoo based, but it's too buggy. I ended up switching over to Mageia because I hate GNOME/GTK and I'm not running Ubuntu or Debian; I was tempted to go back to Slackware, which I started on, but it just doesn't make sense to not use a package manager in this day and age. Mageia works well, but I want to try some others out and pick my new every day distro, so I thought I'd ask. I'd also be grateful to any other LInux users who want to give me a recommendation, and Mac and Windows users can feel free to post cat pictures and neg rep me of course.
