I recently installed this version of linux because I managed to kill an old debian installation that still had lilo as the boot manager. Installation went fairly well, but once everything was up there was just something not quite kosher with it. I couldn't really put my finger on what it was though.
The default desktop colors are pretty darned nasty looking, but that wasn't it because I know that I can change that sort of thing pretty darned easily. I think it had to do with the way things were configured, and how you reconfigure them. I just didn't feel like I had any control over what was going on with it.
So I switched the system back to debian, and I am quite happy with it now.
